Communities for Children

What we do

Communities for Children supports children (0-12yrs) and their families though the provision of place-based, targeted and holistic programs.

Communities for Children (C4C) Bendigo is one of 45 sites across Australia. Funded by the  Department of Social Services (DSS) under the Families and Communities Programme, the Communities for Children initiative aims to deliver positive and sustainable outcomes for children and families experiencing disadvantage.

Bendigo Reads is a Communities for Children initiative that aims to support early literacy and language development for Bendigo children. It is proudly supported by Bendigo Health, Bendigo Business Council and Anglicare Victoria.
