We’re partnering with four communities across metropolitan, regional, remote and very remote WA. Our communities include Armadale West, Central Great Southern (including Shires of Katanning, Kojonup, Gnowangerup and Broomehill-Tambellup), Derby (including Mowanjum and Pandanus Park) and Bidyadanga.
How our communities were selected
A number of communities had been identified with a high population of children aged from birth to four years, with data showing a clear need to improve their early childhood outcomes.
This data came from the Australian Early Development Census, Australian Bureau of Statistics and community-level data held by the WA Health Department and other key agencies.
In addition, community readiness was assessed, including identifying local champions, current resources available, a local urgency for change and a willingness to participate.
The EYP Board made the final community selection.
