Helping vulnerable and disadvantaged families with children from birth to age 12 is the key focus for the Communities for Children program. The program focuses on parent education, activities and opportunities for children, intensive family support, coordination and collaboration.
The overall outcome is to help children grow up having positive experiences in their community by engaging in meaningful and accessible activities.
CatholicCare Wilicannia-Forbes is the facilitating partner for Communities for Children so we partner with organisations to develop programs to strengthen and enhance parenting abilities and engage social networks enabling stronger communities. These programs include intensive family support, parenting education, school holidays and after school activities, disability focused education and community events.
