Communities for Children Initiative

Vision – our community is a place where all children have the opportunity to reach their full potential.

Communities for Children is a Federal initiative under the Families and Communities Program which aims to

  • support families
  • strengthen relationships
  • improve the wellbeing of children and young people
  • increase participation of people in community life to enhance family and community functioning.

The program provides funding for a range of services to support and strengthen local families and community. It also supports a local Community Consultative Committee (CCC) which is a key decision making body for the program.  Community members and services interested in attending are welcome to contact Centacare NQ on 07 4749 8100.
