Rural and remote families including Aboriginal families, face many challenges in accessing information, resources, professional parenting and specialised supports such as when perinatal depression is an issue.
The Community Links Project will provide remote and regional families and their communities with access to Tresillian parenting information and programs to best meet their parenting needs, improve child development outcomes and reduce the impact of isolation.
Programs will further promote the role of family, provides supports for fathers and boys, programs for Aboriginal families and caregivers and assist rural and remote parents as well as child and family agencies to gain knowledge as well as access to professional information and supports which responds to their needs and to support children to grow in a nurturing functioning family environment.
Pay for the co ordination of specialist Tresillian and fathers/boys programs (cover all costs) in a variety of remote regions to support parents and further skill regional child and family agencies.
Pay for a two day parenting workshop gathering in a remote community.
Will pay for a Graduate Certificate in a Tresillian Scholarship to enable the skilling of a remote nurse to build skills to support her community.
Will buy a series of 10 professional webinar supports linking Tresillian specialists with a group of remote parents.
Will cover the costs of two night’s accommodation and petrol for an isolated western family to come to Dubbo to attend pre birth doctor’s appointment.
