“To increase the capacity of families to cope with daily living challenges and to enrich family and community life”
CFSS WA LTD has been providing services since 1989, including management and recovery from trauma in the community of Carnarvon, with outreach into the surrounding Gascoyne Region. The current CFSS WA LTD staff is a mixture of Indigenous and non-Indigenous employees. This gives CFSS WA LTD staff considerable access, trust and credibility with the Carnarvon community.
