Skye’s story

December 12, 2019

Skye’s children are the centre of her life.

“They are my world and I don’t know what I’d do without them,” she says.

Her two children live with her, one-year-old Aylah and seven-year-old Ryda.

After coming to the realisation that her troubled childhood was starting to take its toll on her young family, Skye signed up for a parenting course, where she met Uniting support worker, Lisa.

“Uniting has been really helpful for me,” says Skye.

“Lisa has been a lifesaver. She has been so helpful, and the two courses I have done have been really handy,” explains Skye.

“Lisa has helped me to improve my parenting skills and has given me the support I needed to get through some tough times. I now know I always have someone to call on when I need to talk.”

Skye has participated in our “Pregnant and Young Parent Support Program” and one-on-one “Parents Under Pressure” sessions with support worker, Lisa. We can only run these valuable programs because of the generosity of compassionate people like you.

Both programs offer practical advice for parents so they can build the skills and knowledge to be the best of parents.

Lisa, says, “I enjoy working with Skye because she is so determined to be the best parent she can be for her children.”

When people are ready to move forward, we want to lend a helping hand. Parents at all stages, like Skye, sometimes don’t know which way to turn. We’re there, by their side, so they don’t feel weighed down by the past or overwhelmed by an unknown future.

It is only with your support that we can continue to run these important programs.
