Coast Families Trust

We are committed to supporting, building and empowering families on the Hibiscus Coast. Coast Families’ Trust is partnering with a local primary school to support parents and caregivers to create stronger families.
We have a part time workers, Kerry Verkade (Red Beach Primary School and Gulf Harbour school) and Sonia Cope (Stanmore Bay school).  Our family worker facilitates connections to parenting, marriage and budgeting courses. They also encourages children into local young people’s programmes and provides advice, guidance and support in how to build stronger family units.
Coast Families Trust is a registered charity and has a Board of Trustees who provide oversight and accountability for our workers.
