The Centre for Community Child Health and the Victorian Council of Social Services present this webinar to explore prevention and early intervention solutions to reduce the impacts of financial hardship and poverty on children and families.

With rising costs of living and stretched family budgets, it can be challenging for children and families to access what they need to thrive and be healthy, such as nutritious foods and secure housing. In addition, financial hardship places enormous pressures and stress on families. Without support or action, financial hardship and poverty in early childhood can have serious and lasting impacts on children’s health, development and wellbeing and can persist for generations.
