Children and families
Stay well and stay connected
COVID-19 has presented our community with many unexpected challenges. We want you to know you are not in this alone and we encourage you to reach out and seek the help you or the people you care about need.
We have put together a list of phone numbers and resources we hope will support you. We are all in this together.
Our local area is experiencing growth in the number of children aged 0-11 years. Council recognises the importance of supporting families and children by providing local activities, events and services as well as community grants, promotion and administrative assistance.
