NEWPIN

New Parent and Infant Network (NEWPIN)

Bethany Community Support assists parents of children under 5 years of age to foster positive change and healthy relationships.

Bethany’s New Parent and Infant Network (NEWPIN) is a Geelong program for mothers with children aged 0 – 4 years who receive family services support.

The program is designed to encourage:

  • positive relationships between parents and their children
  • healthy, safe environments for children
  • effective parenting skills and setting daily routines
  • play and learning opportunities that suit the children’s age and skills
  • improved social connections for families.

Mothers and their children attend weekly group sessions for 12 months or more at Bethany’s family centre in Geelong. The sessions and The NEWPIN team also provides individual support and provide visits to meet the needs of each family.
