Welcome to the Community Door information portal on children and families.

Prevention and early intervention programs are critical in reducing the costs of crisis services, such as those associated with the child protection system.

Prevention and early intervention services provide many things - support linking people to training and work, help securing a home, practical parenting support, and help navigating the school system. Children can also experience specific mental health issues.
