Our Approach

Family Centre has always provided urgent services to strengthen and stabilize children in crisis, and a broad range of services that prevent children from becoming in crisis. This combination is essential in making lasting change to the norms that define well-being for all children in Bermuda.

Community Programmes: Our community programmes promote strength-building in various skills such as team-work, decision-making and leadership through participation in community-based groups. Youth learn social skills, self-regulation and the benefits of working to their fullest potential. 

Counselling Services: Our counselling services get families out of crisis, create safety and rebuild positive relationships through empowerment of family members that can break negative cycles and move forward with better care and protection.
