Short Description: Communities for Children Funding in Alice Springs
Communities for Children is funded under the Australian Government's Family Support Program. It aims to deliver positive and sustainable outcomes for disadvantaged and at risk children from birth to twelve years and their families in disadvantaged sites throughout Australia.
As part of the Australian Government's $125 million Alice Springs Transformation Plan, a new Communities for Children site is being jointly funded, in partnership with the Northern Territory Government, a total of $3 million over three years 2009 / 10 – 2011 / 12. The Australian Government and the Northern Territory Government will be working collaboratively on the implementation of the Communities for Children Alice Springs site.
The Department of Families, Housing Community Services and Indigenous Affairs invites applications from organisations who are interested in becoming a 'Facilitating Partner' under the Communities for Children initiative.
The Facilitating Partner in each community will drive and manage a community development approach to improving outcomes for children. They will work in collaboration with the community and local service providers to develop and implement an Activity Work Plan tailored to the particular needs of disadvantaged and 'at risk' children and their families in Alice Springs.
All applications close at 2pm AEST on Wednesday 2 September 2009. All applicants are required to register by emailing childrenandparentingservices (firstname.lastname@example.org). An Application Form and other relevant information will be sent to organisations upon registration.
