Communities for Children

Communities for Children is funded by the Commonwealth Department of Social Services (DSS) and facilitated in Burnie by CatholicCare. We work in partnership with service providers across Burnie to offer a range of supports for families. Our main activities include: Bernie’s Pad in the Plaza and Bernie the Lizard; wrap around support for young parents; activities and support for families with children aged 5-12 years; a neighbourhood project with people who live in Havenview; and the ‘Dream Big’ project in primary schools across Burnie.
