Its the time of year when the 2024 booklists and school uniform are being given to parents in the Loddon Mallee Region. The DFFH Homeless Children’s Brokerage Program is available to assist children with these items. Families are struggling at Christmas and the extra assistance with these items will be welcome relief.
The Homeless Children’s Brokerage Support has been established to 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 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
