Wunan manages the Child & Parent Centres (CPCs) in Kununurra & Halls Creek in partnership with the WA Department of Education.
Research shows that 90 per cent of a child’s brain develops by the age of three. So clearly the experiences children have during this time impact on their success at school and in later life. Child & Parent Centres support families as they begin to lay the foundations for their children’s development and learning habits.
The Kununurra & Halls Creek CPCs offer a range of activities for children and families, including:
The Save the Children Night Patrol provides transport home or to another safe place. The Night Patrol is staffed by a team of local Aboriginal people with strong ties to the community and a working knowledge of complex family networks.
The Safe House provides crisis accommodation to women, with or without children, impacted by family and domestic violence or other forms of crisis. The Ngnowar Aerwah Aboriginal Corporation also offers various other services including community centre programs, advocacy, drug and alcohol counselling and rehabilitation, and family support.
Kununurra Neighbourhood House is a not-for-profit family support service committed to providing emotional and practical support within our community by preventing isolation through the development of support groups, networks, education and information available to individuals and families.
As is the case for many north west towns, the population of Kununurra is transient making KNH’s role in the community an important one, reducing isolation by assisting individuals and families as they adjust to the Kimberley lifestyle without the normal support networks.
