Aboriginal, Child and Family Centres
About the centres
There are 9 Aboriginal Child and Family Centres (ACFCs) in NSW. They provide a mix of culturally safe services and support for Aboriginal families with children aged 0–8 years. They are located in Brewarrina, Lightning Ridge, Gunnedah, Mount Druitt, Nowra, Toronto, Minto, Doonside, and Ballina.
Services delivered through the centres include:
- early childhood education and care
- parent and family support
- maternal and child health
- adult education opportunities.
Family and Community Services (FACS) Districts are working with local service providers and communities to determine how the centres can best meet the needs of the local population in the future.
