Welcome to FamilyCare...


FamilyCare is a dynamic non-government, not-for-profit organisation who commenced in Shepparton in 1984.  We now offer family services, carer and disability support services to families and young people in Shepparton, Seymour, Cobram, Kinglake, Wallan and surrounding districts.


FamilyCare works in partnership with the community, reflecting best practice by assisting families and individuals to enhance their strengths throughout their lives, through the provision of responsive and proactive services.

Knight Street/ Welsford Street bend near the RSL will be closed to west bound traffic from 25 October for Stage 3 of works. It is estimated the road will be re-opened in January 2018.  Access to the Plus 1 group, Berry Street, Familycare and RSL will be available from Nixon Street and Welsford Street. We ask for your attention to and adherence with all traffic management signage for own safety and that of pedestrians, other travellers and road workers.

We encourage all of our service users to enter from the rear of our office via 94 Wyndham street wherever it is practical to do so.

Baskets of Joy 2017

While Christmas is a happy and joyous time for many of us, some families experience great stress and difficulty during this period. To help families in need we are asking for donations of non-perishable food items like Christmas cake, pasta, rice, cereals, biscuits, custard, tea bags, canned fruit and essential household items like toothpaste, soap and detergent.

‘Baskets of Joy’ will be collected and delivered to FamilyCare to distribute to families in need just prior to Christmas.
Registrations to request for a basket to collect donations are now open.  Register here
