Who we Are
The Village Northern Beaches was founded by Alex and Marianne, two Northern Beaches parents and advocates both with qualifications in Community Services as well as parenting program accreditation. Marianne also works as a Family Support Caseworker. The friends and colleagues felt first-hand the isolation, fear and helplessness that can happen when a young person in your care is struggling.
Then they experienced the benefits of community and support. It is now their life work to make it easier for adults to access reliable information and support when challenges present with their young people, and to promote the preservation of relationship as the basis for protection, prevention and healing.
Marianne and Alex were born and bred on the Northern Beaches and have many years of experience imperfectly but consciously raising 7 teens/young adults between them.
