In-home Support

Early environments and relationships play a crucial role in determining whether children develop their social, emotional and cognitive skills in a way that gives them a solid foundation for further development.


In Home Support programs assist Aboriginal families to strengthen, support and strengthen their parenting capacity and improve the health, development, learning and wellbeing of Aboriginal children aged 0-3 years.

There are 6 sites where In-home Support programs are run. These are:

Mildura Mildura Aboriginal Cooperative (or Mallee District Aboriginal Services)
