BOOSTING FLEXIBLE SUPPORT FOR LOCAL FAMILIES AND CHILDREN

Local families will soon be able to access much needed assistance to secure housing, healthcare, and counselling through flexible early intervention and support services.

The Andrews Labor Government has provided $550,860 in funding over four years for these vital services in the South East.

Flexible support packages help families receiving Child FIRST and Integrated Family Services in practical ways such as meeting the cost of baby safety equipment or undertaking specialised counselling or treatment services.

With local families facing their own unique challenges, flexible support packages allow local support services to best meet the individual needs of families through tailored support.
