Mobile Children’s Services provide flexible, responsive and innovative services to children and families experiencing social, geographic, cultural or economic isolation or a combination of these. Focusing on the care and education of children, they aim to ensure that children and families in isolated and disadvantaged communities in rural, urban and remote areas have fair and reasonable access to good quality, safe children’s services.
Through their work with children, Mobile Children’s Services support families, the parenting role, local communities and the economy, consistent with an ecological model of child development.
Mobile Children’s Services operate from a base such as Bankstown, Bourke, Moree, Inverell, Hay, Broken Hill, Maitland, Marrickville and Penrith outreaching into the isolated communities.
There are currently 115 Mobile Children’s Service ‘projects’ in NSW sponsored by 73 organisations.
