Connecting Community for Kids is supported by a Joint Advisory Committee (JAC) providing the strategic leadership, and a Joint Leadership Team (JLT) being the conduit between the high-level strategic JAC, businesses, service providers and communities.

Joint Advisory Committee (JAC):

The Joint Advisory Committee (formerly the Early Years Partnership Forum Working Group) is comprised of State Government Departments and organisations with a passion for improving childhood outcomes and building capacity in the community. The JAC ensures a commitment from a senior government level to identify community needs and implement change.

The Joint Leadership Team (JLT)

The Joint Leadership Team is the decision making body of Connecting Community for Kids. The JLT is made up of government agencies and not-for-profit organisations servicing the communities of Cockburn and Kwinana, bringing together a core group of people who are passionate about the needs of children in their early years.


We partner with other service providers to help deliver our vision of building strong, safe communities where together we can help our children thrive.
