C4C Playgroups

Delivered by Shine Bright

Each week (during school terms) three playgroups run in different locations across Bendigo for families with young children. Our playgroups aim to support the development of young children, and build the skills, knowledge and confidence of families, and the capacity of the community where they live.

Connecting Community

Delivered by BDAC

C4C Bendigo values the long-standing partnership with our local Aboriginal Community Controlled Organisation (ACCO), the Bendigo and District Aboriginal Cooperative (BDAC).

This project provides important opportunities to support local Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander families to reconnect with each other and culture following the COVID pandemic.

Each week (during school terms) three groups run in different locations across Bendigo particularly for families with children aged 0-3, although children up to age 5 are also welcome. PCMG strengthens bonding, attachment and positive interaction between parents/carers and their young children by introducing them to the pleasure and power of using rhymes, songs and stories together.

Voice of the Family

Being family centred and child focussed is a core principle of C4C Bendigo.

The Voice of the Family (VoF) project is the key mechanism through which C4C Bendigo listens to and includes family voice. C4C Bendigo have partnered with Noah’s Ark Bendigo to undertake this work.
