Become a Better Beginnings Community today
If there is not a distributor in your community already, think about nominating or becoming one. Better Beginnings works with all kinds of distributors including CEOs, councils, Elders, teachers, nurses and even parents or volunteers.
If you've checked the map and the list, and would like to nominate your community, simply follow the steps below...
Have a chat with your community to work out who would be a good distributor. Try and choose someone who has contact with the families and children in the area, and who has the time to hand out the bags. If you are working in the school or clinic, be sure to get in touch with the CEO or chairperson in your community as well.
Fill out the form here to provide Better Beginnings with information including contact details, the number of children in the community and an address to post the resources to.
Get the form back to Better Beginnings by faxing, emailing or posting the completed form. The Aboriginal Liaison Officer will be in touch to confirm these details and welcome you to the program.
What if I don't live in a remote community?
At the moment we are working mostly with discrete communities in the Pilbara and Kimberley. Better Beginnings understands the need for resources to support Aboriginal families in metro areas, and may be able to support individuals or organisations who work with Aboriginal families and children. If this sounds like you, please contact us to find out more.
