Family Relationship Centre Chermside

The Chermside Family Relationship Centre, which is auspiced by Centacare CFCS, opened its doors in July 2008 to offer a range of services to the community. The Centre is located in the Westfield Chermside Shopping Centre, with easy access for public transport and ample parking.

The Centre provides a family friendly environment, with the reception area featuring comfortable lounges, a children’s play area and a designated client computer area and direct telephone access to the Child Support Agency, Centrelink and Family Relationships Advice Line. Also displayed is an extensive range of community service brochures and parenting reference materials.

The purpose of the Centre is to provide support and referrals for families to services that will assist in strengthening family relationships both with intact and separated families. The primary service provided is Family Dispute Resolution (FDR), which aims to assist parents in keeping the needs and interests of children in the forefront of their mind when they are negotiating over parenting matters. This focus promotes the rights of children to have meaningful relationships with both parents and their extended family.

Services offered include:

  • Information and referrals for families based on their specific needs.
  • Individual confidential sessions with a practitioner to identify options
  • Group pre-mediation information sessions to assist parents in preparing themselves for the mediation process
  • Consultations with the Child Consultant to help parents understand their children’s needs prior to mediation
  • Dispute resolution in the form of mediation to assist parents in communicating about workable parenting arrangements based on the needs of their children
  • When FDR is not successful, providing a certificate, upon request, that will allow parents to attend Family Court regarding children’s matters.
