NEIC Parenting Forum

What is it?

Being a parent is one of the most important jobs in the world. It is also one of the most challenging, especially during a pandemic. Under Subgroup 3, the NEIC is developing a Parenting Forum to coordinate the parenting supports and give parents a say in how the NEIC can support them as children develop and grow.

Our vision

Our NEIC strategic ambition is to improve family wellbeing with a focus on parenting through development of parenting champions and an increase in courses and supports.

We support an inclusive community engagement model which links every family and service in the community. Direct involvement of local parents is part of the engagement model and engine for change in creating better outcomes and a brighter future for all children living in the NEIC.

The NEIC Parenting Forum is very much aligned with our guiding principle of building a culture of community trust through support, compassion, respect and honesty.

Our plan

Over the next year, we will be:

1. Setting up a parenting forum to give parents a say in how the NEIC supports children and families and what we could do better

2. Providing up-to-date information to parents about the supports, courses and services available in the NEIC
