North Coast Times - - NEWS - READ IT ON­LINE FIRST

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.
