One Tree partners with Wanslea and Communicare to deliver Inclusion Support in northern WA

19.05.2016

One Tree is excited to announce that we have been selected by the Australian Government to deliver the Inclusion Support Program in Western Australia in partnership with Wanslea and the lead agency for WA, Communicare.  This is an exciting partnership that will allow One Tree to support more children and families throughout WA.

The Inclusion Support Program is part of the Australian Government's $543 million commitment to supporting the inclusion of children with additional needs in early childhood and school-aged services nationally, through the Child Care Safety Net component of the Jobs for Families package

The program supports services providing early education and care to build their capacity and capability to include children with additional needs. Under the new guidelines, children supported by this program include those with a disability or those being diagnosed with a disability, those from diverse cultural and language backgrounds, refugee children, Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander children and vulnerable children.  

One Tree is passionate about providing quality early education and care for all children. The Inclusion Support program will enable One Tree to extend our support to other early education and care services throughout the state to include children with additional needs, and remove access barriers for their families.
