Communities for Children, Anglicare NT, Strong Kids Strong Centre, Red Cross and Connected Beginnings, Department of Education NT, have collaborated to facilitate the design, development and coordination of a Child Friendly Alice Community Profile (CFACP). This Profile will be a resource to guide actions towards the Child Friendly Alice initiative (CFAI).
This Initiative is a community collective with the shared aspiration of improving the wellbeing of children and their families in Alice Springs.
Who are we? A group of organisations (Communities for Children, Anglicare, Strong Kids Strong Centre, Red Cross, Connected Beginnings, Department of Education NT and Larapinta Child & Family Centre) who together with other agencies are working to enhance the wellbeing of children and families in Alice Springs.
What are we doing? We are undertaking a 90 day whole of community consultation to bring together the views and hopes of children, young people and adults to gain a comprehensive picture of how children and families in Alice Springs are doing.
Why are we doing this? We support the idea of a people led local community, and that children and families know the type of community they want to live in.
How are we doing this? We are asking community members to respond to a set of questions (one for children/youth and one for adults).
What will this look like? We are creating a Child Friendly Alice Community Profile which will bring together the responses from the consultation and hard data to help us understand what’s good, what’s not so good and what needs to change for the community.
What will this Community Profile be used for? With this picture, we, as a collective and community can focus on how we can build change for the better and track that change over time. We anticipate that this will be an ongoing conversation with clear outcomes and actions.
