Franklin Family Support Trust exists so that
families and individuals in the wider Franklin area, who access our services, demonstrate increasing wellbeing.
We will know this because:

Families and individuals report improved health, social and educational outcomes.



Families and/or individuals affected by financial strain learn and apply skills and strategies to resolve the strain.



Families and/or individuals affected by (or at risk of being affected by) family violence or other safety issues are better able to resolve pressing issues and experience increased safety.



Caregivers navigate the transition to parenthood with confidence.



Young people navigate the transition to adulthood safely.
