Ngala to extend services
PARENTING group Ngala Community Services is extending its presence in the cities of Wanneroo and Joondalup, in partnership with Anglicare.
Its Parenting Connection WA partnership aims to support parents with children up to 18 years old in the north west metropolitan suburbs.
“Its purpose is for local parents to have the knowledge, skills and confidence to be the best parents they can be,” north west metro and building partnerships manager Sara Browne said.
“Ngala will work with local communities to identify particular needs, ensuring services are the right fit for the community.
“Local parents, community groups and service providers are encouraged to have their say and share what services would reflect their local community.
“Ngala will build a stronger presence in Alkimos in partnership with the City of Wanneroo extending to Yanchep.”
It already runs programs at the Jenolan Way Community Centre in Merriwa and at its Child and Parent Centre in Banksia Grove.
Ngala will start to have a presence at Joondalup Family Centre where parents can attend parent education and ‘circle of security’.
This month, it will hold an event in Merriwa for the local area partnership group to gather ideas, concerns and suggestions from parents on how to improve parenting services.
It will be at the Compass Centre on the corner of Connolly Drive and Jenolan Way tomorrow from 9.30 to 11.30am.
