STRONGER COMMUNITIES

FOR CHILDREN

Stronger Communities
for Children
WHAT IS THE

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 Yol\u 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

Our Indigenous Parenting Program is a beneficiary and outcome of the SCFC program.
