Parents can have say in children and family planning

Following on from National Families Week, with the theme stronger families, stronger communities, local parents and carers are encouraged to take part in a survey to help plan the development of a children’s services plan.

The Family and Children’s Service Survey will help determine how services in Greater Geraldton are currently supporting families to be stronger, and how the suite of services could be strengthened for the future.

Karen McDowell, Manager of City of Greater Geraldton owned and operated Bright Stars Family Day Care, said the City is consulting with parents, children, educators and service providers about current and future services.

“The City has teamed up with Child Australia Inc and encourages parents and carers to complete the survey to share their experiences with child and family services and spaces,” she said.

“It will help inform future planning of children’s services in the Mid West.”

The survey can be found at and hard copies are available at the Geraldton Regional Library and Mullewa Library and also Queens Park Theatre and the Queen Elizabeth II Seniors and Community Centre. Completed surveys can be lodged at these venues.
