The centre supports both Indigenous and non-Indigenous Australian families.

The Family Action Centre is concerned with integrating direct service to strengthen families and communities with research, teaching and dissemination, with the ultimate aim of improving policy and practice in this field.

Past and present Indigenous programs and resources developed by the centre include:

The Centre is self-funded, receiving funds from departments of the NSW State Government and the Commonwealth Government, from philanthropic organisations, and from corporate and private sponsorship.
