State Government Funded Helpline
The "Parent Line NSW" (managed by CatholicCare) provides a unique free support service to parents/caregivers across NSW.
Highly skilled professional counsellors are available 24 hours a day 7 days a week to take calls from parents/caregivers about any parenting issues; from tips on how to manage the morning routine, to concerns about distant adolescents.
It is there to assist during any part of the parenting journey, at any time of the day or night, any where in NSW. It's convenient because parents/caregivers can call when it suits them; they don't have to arrange childcare to talk to a professional counsellor, and they can call as many times as they need.
The Parent Line NSW website offers a range of tip sheets for parents/caregivers about contemporary issues facing families today. It contains some parenting stories written by our counselling team that normalise parenting challenges, as well as web links to other NSW wide services.
The Parent Line NSW telephone counselling line is 1300 1300 52 and is available for the cost of a local call from a land line.
