CfC is delivered at Deception Bay in South East Queensland.

Responding To Specific Needs

The CfC program was created in response to a recognised need for prevention and early intervention efforts to achieve positive outcomes for disadvantaged communities throughout Australia.

We aim to give children the best start in life by using prevention and early intervention approaches that work towards improved health and wellbeing of families, and to create strong, child-friendly communities.

“Without the CfC Pasifika playgroup I would not have settled in Australia as quick as I have. I did not know anyone when I came here, just my daughter and husband. Now I have a lot of friends, young and old from different ethnic groups.” – Parent
