Moyne Shire Council
Moyne Shire Council maintains a dedicated team of Maternal and Child Health Nurses who provide a free family-centred service to parents and carers with children from birth to school age. Working in partnership with families the Maternal and Child Health Nurse offers guidance, support and information in all aspects of parenting, child health and development, maternal health and family well-being.
Very Special Kids
Very Special Kids provides holistic palliative care for children and young people with life-limiting conditions, and tailored support for their families – through life, death and bereavement. Our integrated approach includes emotional, clinical and practical support to help improve quality of life and create positive, lasting memories.
Canteen supports 12-25 year olds dealing with their own diagnosis, a close family member’s cancer or the death of a loved one. Our services also now extend to parents, because when they cope better with cancer and communicate openly, their children are likely to experience less distress and anxiety.
If you care for or know a child, aged 18 and under, who either has cancer or has been treated for cancer, we’re here to help with practical, financial and mental health support.
