CONNECTING Community for Kids is hosting a series of Community Workshops in Kwinana and Cockburn.

The aim of the workshops is to brainstorm concerns around childhood development.

Connecting Community for Kids is a collective impact initiative developed to empower parents, children and professionals to work together and make a lasting difference in the lives of children pre-birth to eight and their families.

Kwinana and Cockburn residents are invited to attend and help make decisions.

Connecting Communities for Kids has found common themes triggering childhood vulnerability: health, isolation, safety and financial strain.

Mother of two Bonnie Madsen has attended all three of Connecting Community for Kids Workshops and is a member of the Kwinana Decision Making Group. She is participating in the collective impact initiative to improve outcomes for local families.

Connecting Community for Kids partnership director Jane Miller said they wanted to hear from anyone with an interest in improving outcomes for children zero to eight- years- old.

A workshop discussing financial strain will be held on July 24. Call 0429 904 324 or email info@connecting4kids.com.au.
