Premier Brumby Recognizes Multicultural Playgroups

ParentsLink was recently presented with an Award for Excellence in service delivery to Multicultural Victoria, for its work in skilling and employing a representative group of respected CALD leaders to provide mentoring, parent education and community engagement through these playgroups.

ParentsLink at MacKillop Family Services provides information, resources and training in parent education as well as facilitating a number of supported playgroups in the Western Metropolitan Region of Melbourne. The playgroups are run by bilingual workers for families from culturally and linguistically diverse (CALD) communities with the purpose of addressing social isolation and to assist them to adjust to parenting in a new culture.
