George Jones Child Advocacy Centre (CAC) - Armadale

The George Jones Child Advocacy Centre is the first of its kind in Australia.

  • Type:Local Focus
  • Charity:Youth Welfare

Details

Description

Our child focused services provide holistic care to meet the needs of each child and family with compassion, understanding and skill; and to strengthen our community's response to the safety, treatment and wellbeing of children who have suffered trauma from abuse.

The George Jones Child Advocacy Centre was opened on Tuesday 1st March by the Honorable Colin Barnett, Premier of Western Australia.  It was a celebration of innovation and success for Parkerville Children and Youth Care, local agencies and government partners who began in 2007 to design, develop and implement this new service for children and young people who have been harmed.Right from the beginning of the George Jones Child Advocacy Centre we have involved children and young people in planning and designing the building and choosing the art work inside the centre. They told us they wanted bright and friendly spaces, colourful murals with lots of creatures, bugs and water.

Involving young people was again very important in our latest project, the urban art for the long exterior wall of the building. Artists Darren Hutchens, Dan Duggan and Lawry Halden facilitated workshops with young people, encouraged their ideas and harnessed these into a cohesive and creative design.  The dragon represents Parkerville, a strong creature who supports and guides children and helps them to go on a journey of recovery from hurt and harm; the children are in charge and tell the dragon how to help them.  The budding young artists named the dragon Parky which is how the kids colloquially refer to us.

Description

PLAYSCHEMES

Playschemes are the largest of our Early Childhood Care and Development programs in Australia and have been running for more than 30 years. They provide children with opportunities to learn, grow and develop through safe and supported play.

Why early childhood learning is important

A child’s development between birth and the age of five is critical to their health, learning and success later in life. Play is crucial - it provides the basis for cognitive, physical, social and emotional learning and development. Unfortunately, many socially and economically disadvantaged families in Australia aren’t able to provide their children with opportunities for play-based learning.

Save the Children’s Playscheme program

Playschemes provide regular early learning activities and parenting support for vulnerable families and children under the six years old. Run by trained Early Childhood staff, the free playgroups help young children learn to play, socialise, establish routine and prepare for school.

In some communities we run Intensive Supported Playschemes, which may include home visits and additional support. During the weekly sessions, Family Support Workers also provide parents with advice and links to community services and other families in a non-threatening environment.

Each session is carefully designed to ensure its relevance and appropriateness for children from a range of backgrounds, such as culturally and linguistically diverse, newly arrived and refugee families and Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander communities.

Where we run our Playschemes

We have Playschemes in major cities, rural and remote communities in approximately 100 locations across Australia. This includes remote Aboriginal communities such as Mornington Island and Doomadgee in Northern Queensland, Kununurra in Western Australia, Wilcannia inNew South Wales, the Far West Coast of South Australia and Wadeye in the Northern Territory.

How we know our Playschemes help children develop

Based on national and international best practices for early childhood learning, our Playscheme program supports thousands of vulnerable children and their families each year. In the last two years alone, the program has grown to assist children and families in an additional 20 locations across Australia. In 2013 alone, more than 4,000 children attended our Playschemes.

Who makes our Playschemes possible

We are grateful to the Australian Government, Queensland Department of Communities, Child Safety and Disability Services and Corrections, the NSW Department of Family and Community Services, the Telethon Foundation and to generous Australians who fund our Playschemes.
