The Isis Child and Family Support Service is an exciting initiative funded jointly by Bundaberg Regional Council and Department of Education & Training, Early Childhood Education & Care. We assist families in acquiring and developing effective, sustainable parenting skills to use toward enhancing positive and rewarding parenting skills. 

Isis Child and Family Support Service is located at the Childers Neighbourhood Centre and provides services, and a variety of programs are also run from the council premises at 14 Hinkler Street Childers. 

This service is a local service and is available on request to families with children aged between 0 and 15 years. If you are feeling isolated, in crisis, needing extra support or information on issues relating to families, the Child and Family Support Coordinator can speak with you by phone, at the centre or in your own home/service. All services are free and confidential
