The Principles of the Ballina - Byron Family Centre which guide our work with families
At the BBFC, staff and families work together in relationships that are built on trust and respect.
The programs of the BBFC enhance families’ capacity to support the growth and development of all family members.
The programs of the BBFC affirm and strengthen families’ social, cultural, racial and linguistic identities.
The programs of the BBFC are embedded in our community and contribute to the community-building process.
The programs of the BBFC are flexible and continually responsive to emerging family and community issues.
The principles of the BBFC are modelled in all aspects of our programs, including planning, service delivery, management and administration.
The BBFC believes that all members of a family should be safe from violence.
The BBFC believes that children should be provided with safe quality alternatives if they cannot live with their birth family.
The BBFC believes that families have multiple forms and are not necessarily biologically based.
