Family and Child

Targeted Early Intervention

Our Family and Child Manager regularly partners with local organisations to provide programs and interventions that are designed to cater for specific needs surrounding parenting and issues that children may face growing up.

The Family and Child Manager works towards prevention because, as reputable research now suggests, intervening in children’s earlier years has a significantly positive impact on the developmental journey of life.

Programs change regularly throughout the year. Current programs being offered are a Supported Playgroup, a Respectful Relationships Program for high school students, Community Yoga, Youth Mentoring and Beyond The Gloves Boxing/Mentoring Program for 12 – 18-year-old girls.

We have a range of other programs that we are working to implement, including Loss and Grief Work with Children and Young People, The Bump program, a single parent’s support group and Multisports activities for teenagers.

We wish to be responsive to community needs so if there are any programs that you think we should create or facilitate, please email or telephone us. Perhaps you have an idea or program that you would like to work on with us?
