Stepfamilies Australia works for social inclusion of stepfamilies. So we aim to:
- Develop better community recognition, understanding and acceptance of step and blended families.
- Strengthen stepfamilies to reduce higher rates of stepfamily breakdown and youth homelessness.
- Work with the government and service delivery sector to build capacity to strengthen stepfamilies.
Stepfamilies Australia works as a catalyst, adding value both to the family relationship sector and other support sectors working with children, young people and families. The innovative work of it’s members helps break down myths and assumptions about stepfamilies and aims to send a message to the community that while stepfamilies are complex and hard work, they are achievable with support.
