Support local services to improve outcomes for children

For Families

It takes a village to raise a child, and Communities for Children is your access to that village. Communities for Children connects you with programs that can help improve the development and wellbeing of children aged 0 to 12.

Communicare supports local organisation, known as Community Partners, to deliver services to the City of Gosnells, City of Armadale, Serpentine-Jarrahdale, or the suburbs of Byford or Mundijong. These services not only focus on the wellbeing and development of your children but can help you with your parenting skills.

Our 2023 projects for families include:

  • Drumbeat – A music program for children in years 4 to 6 who need mental health support and connection.
  • Cool Kids – A cognitive behaviour therapy program for kids aged 6 to 12 with anxiety
  • Children’s Counselling – A 1-on-1 support service for children aged 6 to 12 that have been impacted by family and domestic violence
  • Parenting Under Pressure – A case management program for families with multiple complex issues

For Community Service Providers

Communities for Children (CfC) is a place-based initiative funded by the Department of Social Services providing prevention and early intervention programs to families with at-risk children from pre-birth to 12 years. It supports integrated service delivery in the areas of family and domestic violence, child development and parental capacity. We build the capacity of local services and increase community awareness and education around children’s development, wellbeing and experiences with family and domestic violence.

Our 2023 projects for community services include:

  • Our Children Matter Community of Practice – Quarterly workshops to improve family and domestic violence informed practice and support and connect local organisations
