Early Years Collaboration With Schools in Child & Adolescent Community Health

June 11 2012

child adolescent community health cach core service delivery
Child & Adolescent Community Health (CACH)Core Service Delivery

The core service delivery areas of CACH are:

  • Child health services
  • School health services
  • Child development services
  • Immunisation
  • At-risk services, with a focus on Aboriginal and refugee families
  • Health promotion and community development
  • Policy development and evaluation
  • Service development and support

Traditional Service System

  • Location
  • Specialist services are usually located separately
  • Children / families have to go to where the specialist services are, rather than vice versa




  • Referral arrangements
  • Children have to meet eligibility criteria
  • There are more children needing support than the specialist services are able to accept
  • This results in bottlenecks and some children not receiving help at all


Support Services

Mainstream Services

  • Information Flow
  • Information tends to flow one way only –from the mainstream services to the specialist
  • Collaboration between specialist and mainstream services is limited

An Integrated System
  • Location
  • Specialist services have outreach bases co-located with mainstream services




  • Referral arrangements
  • Specialist services work directly with some ‘eligible’ children and provide consultant support for all others
  • Specialist services also provide consultant support to mainstream services on a broad range of child and family issues


Support Services

Mainstream Services

  • Information Flow
  • Information flows both ways between mainstream and specialist services
  • Specialist and mainstream service providers collaborate as equal partners

why was brookman house chosen in south metro
Why was Brookman House chosen in South Metro?
  • Results of the Australian Early Development Index (AEDI), in the southern corridor
  • Other factors that were considered included:
    • A facility already available with Department of Communities containing Parenting WA service and community playgroups
    • Location directly opposite Brookman Primary School
    • Expected population projections for 0-19 year olds
    • SEIFA data indicating Langford as the most disadvantaged compared to surrounding suburbs
aedi table gosnells
AEDI table - Gosnells

Langford has the lowest SEIFA score in the Gosnells area. The figures above show the highest proportion of children developmentally vulnerable in the domain of Communication Skills and General Knowledge; and high vulnerability in 3 further domains giving Langford 29.7% of children being vulnerable in 2 or more domains (second highest to Maddington at 36.8% and next is Thornlie at 19.7%).

Brookman House Governance

The project involves a Steering Committee, Operational group and a proposed Stakeholder group which will hopefully develop from the stakeholder forum.

The Governance structure may alter slightly due to the announcement of the Child & Parent Centre funding for Brookman Primary School.

Westminster Early Years Service Governance

The project involves a Steering Committee, Operational group and a Stakeholder group with members-in-common to all groups

A stakeholder meeting of parents, govt and non-government representatives resulted in 16 expressions of interest to form a Stakeholder Group to implement Early Years activities and projects on the school site. This Group includes parents and organisations working together at different levels of the project.
