Communities for Children Facilitating Partners
Communities for Children Facilitating Partners (CfC FPs) supports children and families in 52 disadvantaged communities across Australia.
CfC FPs take an early intervention approach that supports families to improve the way they relate to each other; improve parenting skills; and to ensure the health and wellbeing of children.
Who will benefit?
In general, CfC FPs focus on improving early childhood development and wellbeing of children from birth to 12 years, but might include children up to age 18 years.
What is the role of the CfC FP?
CfC FPs build on local strengths to meet the needs of individual communities, and to create capability within local service systems, using strong evidence of what works in early intervention and prevention. They collaborate with other organisations to provide a holistic service system for children and families.
How is the service delivered?
CfC FPs fund other organisations (known as Community Partners) to provide services targeted to their community as identified by a local committee. These services include parenting support, group peer support, case management, home visiting, community events and life skills courses. Activities that support children and families affected by domestic and family violence may also be supported.
CfC FPs are committed to evidence-based practice and deliver services that have been shown to achieve positive results for children and families.
