A support program to help meet the needs of families with young children aged up to eight was launched at the Parenting WA centre in Mount Lawley recently.
The Department of Local Government and Communities has partnered with the Western Australian Council of Social Service (WACOSS) in a two-year pilot project to boost early years' networks across the State.
WACOSS received $550,000 from Lotterywest for the Early Years Networks Support Program, which is also supported by Woodside. As part of the partnership, WACOSS staff involved in the program will work from the Parenting WA centre in Mount Lawley.
The program will provide opportunities for the networks to share resources and develop best practice across a range of activities, as well as promote coordination and collaboration between the 35 early years networks throughout Western Australia.
