Family initiative shared
A big breakfast for 80 people who work with families in Porirua provided an ideal opportunity recently for those attending to learn more about the Family Start initiative.
They also met the new Wesley Community Action Family Start team of Lizzie McMillan, Maria Burgess, Cheryl Walbran, Emma Hartley, Tania Gilsenan, and Veronique Rochecouste.
At the breakfast, Family Start manager with the Ministry of Social Development, Min Vette, explained that the programme was a home visiting programme that helped people with young children. Family Start also provides opportunities to learn new parenting skills as well as assisting them with advocacy.
