Western Times - - BEST OF THE WEST -

GOOLBURRI Abo­rig­i­nal Health Ad­vance­ment Com­pany’s re­gional St Ge­orge Of­fice hosted col­leagues from Toowoomba, Roma, Cun­na­mulla, Charleville and Goondi­windi as part of their Fam­ily Well-be­ing Ser­vice and Child Pro­tec­tion Week 2017 program last week.

The Fam­ily Well-be­ing Program fo­cusses on the in­ten­sive fam­ily sup­port of our Abo­rig­i­nal and Tor­res Strait Is­lan­der Fam­i­lies through peo­ple shar­ing their sto­ries, dis­cussing the im­por­tance of their re­la­tion­ships and iden­ti­fy­ing goals for the fu­ture, to en­sure that they stay to­gether on Coun­try.

Na­tional Child Pro­tec­tion Week 2017 in­vites all Aus­tralians to play their part to pro­mote the safety and well-be­ing of our chil­dren andtheir fam­i­lies.

South-west Fam­ily Well­be­ing Program Leader Anne Lee said the Ser­vice providers, Agen­cies and Part­ners in­clud­ing Balonne Shire Coun­cil­lors and El­ders at­tended the roll-out of the program, that co­in­cided with Na­tional Child Pro­tec­tion Week 2017.

“It was ex­cit­ing to have such a great cross-sec­tion of com­mu­nity mem­bers, agen­cies and ser­vice providers.”

Goolburri Fam­ily Well-be­ing Ser­vice prides it­self in con­nect­ing with fam­i­lies and com­mu­ni­ties and em­ploys lo­cal peo­ple to work with fam­i­lies and car­ers to keep chil­dren safe and fam­i­lies to­gether.
