Personal, family or community circumstances can create vulnerabilities for families and children, placing their wellbeing under pressure. These circumstances include poverty, unemployment, relationship issues, illness, frequent family relocation, family violence, alcohol and other drug use, social isolation, racism and other forms of discrimination. This event will elaborate on these issues, explore the impact of vulnerability on young children as well as focus on on identifying and approaching support structures—within and outside our setting—that can help vulnerable children.
