About this Event

The TeEACH Strategic Research Initiative at Western Sydney University welcomes you to Research Week at Western. For further events during this week, please visit the website at www.westernsydney.edu.au/researchweek

This presentation will discuss the ways in which community members, often on a voluntary basis, mobilise to support families and young children during times of collective crisis.

In recent times in Australia, communities have endured significant challenges, including as the result of fire, floods, drought and the Covid Pandemic. As devastating as these events are, they have also been shown to be potential catalysts for community mindedness and reaching out to those who are most vulnerable or isolated.

This presentation will discuss the importance of community connection for families of young children, and examine how we might sustain the renewed commitment to supporting families and children experiencing adversity in the post-Covid world.

Organisers:

A/Prof Rebekah Grace: Director, TeEACH Strategic Research Initiative

Dr Kelly Baird: Research Associate, School of Nursing & Midwifery

The Zoom link will be sent to you the day prior to the event.
