What we do

The National Community Hubs Program

Community hubs serve as gateways that connect families with each other, with their school, and with existing services. Dozens of community hubs operate under the National Community Hubs Program – recognised as a leading model to engage and support migrant women and young children.

Community Hubs focus on reaching women and preschool children ensuring that children are ready to start school and women are engaged with their local community.

Why Community Hubs

Without a welcoming hub to visit, many migrant women can spend most of their time at home, isolated from the rest of the community. Children may miss out on playgroup and other preschool services that help get ready to start school.
