Early Childhood Support

Our message about our shared responsibility regarding child safety is targeted to our staff and foster carers, as well as people thinking of becoming WEK Services staff or foster carers. We are working on adapting the message contained in We Put Children First for children and young people.

Staff receive training on children’s rights and abuse reporting requirements. WEK will assist the family to access education opportunities, meaningful activities and required services for the child.

Children will be assisted to become as independent and autonomous as possible, via learning and development, not forgetting FUN!

WEK staff are sensitive to families’ cultural preferences, provide support for family members and ensure the family is wholly involved in decisions regarding the child and his/her care plan. Where relevant, WEK collaborates with schools, other service providers, and community organisations to implement the child’s care plan.
