Our Programs

Uplifting Australia delivers life-changing outcomes to children and families.  Our programs develop emotional wellbeing and resilience through the provision of engaging, inspiring and experiential activities that nurture and strengthen family relationships and culture.

Our Family Connect program provides families with a healthy emotional system to implement at home which supports listening, appreciation, emotional literacy and self-responsibility for the family. Uniquely, the whole family learns these skills together to support great realationships and good mental health outcomes.

Family Connect is backed by evidence, research and a team of thought leaders in family wellness.
