Raymond Terrace & Karuah Communities for Children Facilitating Partner

The Smith Family has been the Facilitating Partner for the Australian Government’s Raymond Terrace and Karuah Region Communities for Children Facilitating Partner (CfC FP) since 2004. We facilitate the delivery of a range of services designed to improve outcomes for children from 0 to 12 years old and their families within the local community.  By taking a place-based and 'whole of community' approach, Raymond Terrace and Karuah CfC FP aims to help build a strong community that is inclusive and supportive of all families living in Raymond Terrace and Karuah Local Government Area.

The Raymond Terrace and Karuah Region CfC initiative operates within the Port Stephens Local Government Area near the Newcastle and Hunter Valley regions of New South Wales.
