Healthy Families Healthy Relationships

Healthy Families, Healthy Relationships (HFHR) is a community education program developed by SASFV Director Jasbir Singh Suropada, that aims to equip families with knowledge and techniques for developing and maintaining healthy relationships within their families.

The HFHR program works with the whole family, rather than just focusing on men or women, and by having each member of the family participate in the program, we are building the entire family’s capacity to achieve healthier relationships. The holistic family-centred approach of HFHR is specifically designed to contribute to the prevention of family violence occurring within the family group.

The program will explore topics such as gender equality, building respectful relationships and communication, family violence awareness, positive parenting techniques and managing family conflict.

The HFHR program is designed to be run face-to-face over three x 3hr sessions, with each session held 1-2 weeks apart. The program is delivered in a safe and comfortable setting and is tailorable to specific community needs and faiths, it is also facilitated by SASFV trained Cross Cultural Volunteer Community Educators who speak community languages.

Because of the adaptability of the program we are able to engage community members in a genuinely culturally safe way, which leads to better trust and engagement in the program and the achievement of sustainably healthier relationships as a result.

If you are a community group or faith-based organisation and interested in having a Healthy Families, Healthy Relationships Workshop Series with your congregation or community then Get in touch with SASFV today.
