Council’s Health and Family Services department is pleased to be once again running a series of Parenting Information Forums for Whitehorse parents, grandparents and carers in 2017.
To deliver the Parenting Information Forum Program, Council uses a range of guest speakers to reflect the diverse range of parenting approaches that individuals, communities and cultures hold. The program aims to achieve great outcomes for families, children and young people and believes that effective parenting matters to a child’s lifelong development and overall wellbeing. By extension Whitehorse Council believes that we must support parents to develop key parenting skills and to relieve common parenting pressures through information.
The information provided to parents at our Parenting Information Forum program does not necessarily reflect the opinions of Council or any employee thereof. Council is therefore not responsible for the accuracy or validity of any of the information presented by the guest presenters.
For further information about the format of Council’s forums and how to access additional access support please download the 2017 Parenting Information Calendar brochure (230.58kB).
