Information session Dubbo

Children and young people entering Out-of-Home Care have often lived through varying degrees of trauma, loss and separation in their short lives. We know such experiences can impact greatly upon their cognitive and social development. We believe working together with carers as a care team is the best way to provide support tailored to the needs of the child or young person in care.
