The Southside Initiative is a collaboration between Woden Community Service, YWCA Canberra, and Community Services #1. The Initiative came about as a response to the increasing developmental vulnerability within the ACT AEDC survey results. It aims to bring together stakeholders from across the southside of Canberra to explore community driven, realistic, and measurable approaches that will assist southside children and their families. This Forum will focus on approaches that are of benefit to children 0 – 8 years and their families who reside on the southside of Canberra.
