Building Brighter Futures
The program aims to connect with children and young people to assist with improving their attendance at school.
On the early childhood side, this program aims to improve young people’s school readiness, the level of parenting support they’re receiving, as well as their engagement, community engagement and access to readily available information.
Building Brighter Futures runs in two parts; the youth engagement side is run directly at the school for school-aged children, throughout regular school hours. The early years workshops are open to all parents with children aged 0-5, and these workshops are run in partnership with local organisations at varying locations.
