Specialist program for children and young people whose lives have been impacted by homelessness and/or violence.
What is the SEED Program?
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. The program includes activities such as:
- tutoring and homework hub
- group sessions and holiday programs
- supported playgroups and parenting programs.
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.
Research and Literature
Children who experience domestic violence are nearly 70% more likely to be behind their peers in developmental areas including education, mental health, wellbeing, behaviour and social skills.
