Who Are We?
Bathurst Family Support Service is a community organisation that is
not-for- profit and a registered charity that provides services for families with children who live in Bathurst and Oberon areas.
We work in partnership with families for best outcomes for children, using a child centred and strengths based approach to our work.
Our vision is that children are safe and resilient in strong families with healthy relationships.

Bathurst Family Support Service recognises Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander people as Australia’s First People, whose land we now all share. We pay respect to the values of the First Australians, and the continuing and enduring cultures which deepen and enrich the life or our nation and communities.
Bathurst Family Support Service operates on Wiradjuri land and we acknowledge the Wiradjuri people as the original custodians of the land on which we work and live. We pay respects to Wiradjuri Elders and the community, and value the children who are the emerging leaders.
