Community Welfare Program
Raising the future generation with parents who are left to raise them all alone.
Parenthood is a responsibility that comes with its various blessing and challenges which can vary according to individual circumstances. However, the challenges faced by a single parent (a mother or a father) can be twice as difficult especially when they are left to raise their children, earn an income and manage the household on their own.
Through this program, we hope to raise awareness and address the impact of living in a single parent household, especially where one parent is responsible for multiple children, can have negative impacts on the children which hinder their development into adulthood. Our Australian Muslim community has experienced these situations which has lead to the consequent generation feeling withdrawn and deprived of their needs and rights, solely due to limitations or lack of resources that they could have with collective community support.
The Silver Lining program is designed to support mothers or fathers who are raising one or more children as a single parent, specifically following major familial events such as a divorce or separation of the parents. We hope to provide these single parents, and their dependent children, access to appropriate resources, services and community connections in order to help supplement the absence of support from the other parent.
Support provided through this program includes, but is not limited to, financial support, activities to improve the family’s wellbeing, tutoring and mentoring services, counselling sessions for parents and children, and more.
The application and validation process is done by the NZF Team with confidentiality. Any information given will only be used to determine the best way we can help you.
