MEMBER VISIT: Kidzspace for Bendigo community

Posted 27 April 2017

VHA Director of Membership and Events, Kerri Langes and Policy Advisor, Paul Tuvey visited Castlemaine District Community Health, Cobaw Community Health Services and Bendigo Community Health Services last week.

They met with BCHS CEO Kim Sykes and discussed plans to care for their community and toured the new Kidzspace building at Kangaroo Flat. 

“A child’s future health, wellbeing and development are shaped by the experience of their early years. Any family can build strengths that significantly contribute to their resilience and ability to bounce back from the challenges of life if supported to do so,” Ms Sykes said.

“(But) not all children have a good start to their lives and not all families know how to deal with a child’s illness, behavioural issues or the stresses that some parents experience.

“Kidzspace fills the need to wrap services around children and families that are most vulnerable to break cycles of disadvantage.”
