COMMUNITY AND CULTURE

Stronger Community for Children 

About SCFC 

Yalu is proud to be the Facilitating Partner for SCFC and we work closely with Ninti One to distribute funding on behalf of government to community-based services, and makes sure those services use the funding properly.

SCfC is a place-based community development program that aims to give Yolŋu children and young people the best possible start in life. It does this through safer families and communities, nurturing educational environments, positive participation opportunities and cultural events that help young people to grow up strong, healthy and confident.

The project approach has been to ensure that local communities have a real say in local decision-making, including what services they need and how they are delivered.

 

SCFC aims to give children and young people a clear and healthy pathway through their early life, by:

  • Strengthening family’s ability to take care of children and young people

  • Providing opportunities to participate in cultural events

  • Supporting children to be ready for school

  • Building community’s ability to lead, plan and prioritise services that children and families need

  • Building the capacity of Indigenous organisations to deliver services

Below is the list of all of the Programs that Yalu runs in SCFC
