Say hello to kids ini­tia­tive

Cockburn Gazette - - LOCAL SPORTS STARS -

A “COL­LEC­TIVE im­pact ini­tia­tive” de­vel­oped to ben­e­fit chil­dren will be of­fi­cially launched for Cock­burn res­i­dents at the City’s Hello Baby event on Wed­nes­day.

Con­nect­ing Com­mu­nity for Kids spokes­woman Kylie Tan­ner said the event, held an­nu­ally for par­ents and ba­bies in Cock­burn, was a plat­form to share what the group of­fers.

“Our aim is to in­volve lo­cal res­i­dents in the big de­ci­sions, with com­mu­nity feed­back driv­ing our ini­tia­tive,” she said.

“Opin­ions, con­cerns and ideas pre­sented at our de­ci­sion mak­ing groups in­form the co-de­sign of our planned ac­tions that will in­volve com­mu­nity, ser­vice providers and the State Gov­ern­ment.”

Ms Tan­ner said Con­nect­ing Com­mu­nity for Kids would have an in­for­ma­tion mar­quee to take par­ents through its jour­ney so far.

“We hope to share our story with the com­mu­nity and strengthen our col­lab­o­ra­tion with par­ents of young chil­dren,” she said.

“It is chil­dren, par­ents, car­ers and ser­vice providers work­ing with fam­i­lies that are at the heart of this ini­tia­tive and Hello Baby pro­vides an out­let for us to cel­e­brate the work we have been do­ing.”
