About Us

The Communities for Children program is funded by the Australian Government to deliver positive and sustainable outcomes for children and families.

As the Facilitating Partner, CatholicCare Sandhurst brokers funding for place-based projects in the Greater Shepparton community to enhance early childhood development and wellbeing for children from before birth to age 12, and their families.

Our Vision is

That all families and children in the City of Greater Shepparton have the opportunity to develop and grow in a supportive and nurturing community.

Our Mission is
