Claymore Child & Family Working Group





The Claymore Action Network (CAN) is an overarching framework enabling multiple service providers, including government and non government organisations, to work together with residents and other key stakeholders to respond effectively to local issues. The Network is made up of a bi-monthly Open Forum, and a Steering Committee which in turn represents four Working Groups – Child and Family, Youth, Learning & Employment and Community Engagement. In addition, Family and Community Services facilitates a Claymore Leadership Forum to assist in developing and implementing a coordinated service system for Claymore. Over 25 agencies are represented across the CAN. A Collective Impact Coordinator has been engaged during 2016 to facilitate the collaborative working process.

The Child and Family Working Group is committed to improving the communication, literacy skills, opportunities and positive life experiences for families and children 0-12 years of age
