‘Family & Co’ is a unique, informative and effective family directory which includes topical and informative editorials. Our distribution is targeted so that ‘Family & Co’ reaches expectant and new parents, seasoned parents, caregivers, grandparents and health care professionals.

‘Family & Co’ is distributed through a variety of established outlets chosen for their popularity with parents and their proactive attitude to providing information: libraries, private schools, community and recreation centres, Public Health Drop-In Clinics, child-care centres, pre-schools and many more.

It Works. ‘Family & Co’ is widely read by families in the area. Many advertisers appear on a regular basis as the magazine generates business for them. Equally, they are referred to the publication by other advertisers and/or readers. We are continually receiving feedback that reiterates the importance of the magazine within the community.

The listing categories provide great scope and relevance to families with children of all ages. Advertisers will be able to have a free listing as long as their business is relevant to the contents of the magazine.
