â€œThe cultural aspects that the service provides is really important because what it does is provide a cultural safety nest for these children to give them the strength so that when they do go into schools and other places that they have a strong social and emotional wellbeing and a very strong identity of who they are that they will be able to cope with whatever life throws at themâ€ Â Geraldine Atkinson – Bangerang/Wiradjuri woman
“Aboriginal people tend to get chronic diseases earlier than non-indigenous Australians.
A regular health check will help identify these diseases and treat them earlier”

Over the next few weeks I will also be uploading more documentaries of Communities for Children Funded programs. These programs are all very different from one another and all make a big difference in the lives of others.
