Support for Children, Young People and Families
We work to create positive childhood experiences for children, young people and families affected by domestic and family violence and/or homelessness. We do this by creating safe spaces, ensuring our workers are child-centred in their practice, through our SEED Program, developing community programs.
We have two crisis accomodations for children and young people which are child-safe, culturally safe and trauma informed. Both our crisis accommodations have dedicated playrooms and youth rooms and the necessary resources and spaces available for children and young people to thrive.
The health and wellbeing of the children and young people at WAGEC is forefront and centre of all our workers. We have a dedicated team of CYP Development Workers to ensure every child is supported during their time at WAGEC. The children and young people at WAGEC are recognised as clients within their own right, with their own experiences and support needs.
The SEED Program identifies the Social, Emotional, Educational and Development needs of children and young people whose lives are impacted by homelessness and domestic and family violence. This program is for children and young people living in WAGEC's crisis and transitional accomodation sites and unfortunately not available to children and young people in the community.
We partner with community daycares, schools, health centres, local government councils and other private and public services to ensure the best possible referrals and outcomes for children and young people. If you are a health or community service and would like to partner to create opportunities for children and young people, get in touch below.
