It is that time of year when parents/caregivers are receiving children’s 2023 Booklists & School Uniform requirements for 2023. The financial stress of ever increasing costs of living and the Festive season approaching is a time when these vulnerable clients need support more than ever. The Homeless Children’s Brokerage Support has been established to provide supports with these expenses and enhance opportunities for children experiencing homelessness and/or family violence to:
- Engage and maintain their education (including early education services such as childcare and kindergarten).
- Reduce social isolation by enhancing access to a range of support, social and recreational opportunities within their community.
- Provide social and emotional growth opportunities for children and provide opportunities to increase relational bonds between parents/carers and children.
Please note that this funding is available only for access by workers in Specialist Homelessness Services for clients experiencing homelessness, housing crisis and/or family violence.
Please ensure that you carefully read the eligibility guidelines and contact the Children’s Resource Program Coordinator, who can provide you with any additional information required. Please email completed applications to firstname.lastname@example.org
