All Children, All Abilities, All Possibilities

Who is it for?

Early Linkers work with all families from all backgrounds including those who speak languages other than English.

The purpose of Early Links is to work with you to understand more about your child's development and find the activities and services you want to access.

These could include community groups, childcare, school, sporting activities, therapy, funding or support for you.

If you do not live in the Inner West and wish to access Early Links services, please call us today.

Early Links is part of the Ability Links program.

How does Early Links work?

Early Linkers offer support to the organisations your child attends, such as childcare centres. They can also find opportunities to talk with experienced professionals

Your Early Linker will help you to get involved in community events and meet other families or carers who have been through similar experiences

Early Linkers can help you find information about your child's development, available services and sources of funding

Where does it happen?

An Early Linker is an experienced professional who has worked with children and families. They can meet you in your home, the library, park, or anywhere else in the community.

How long does it go for?­

Early Links is a short-term service, with the length of the service dependent on the needs of your family. Families typically participate in Early Links for up to 6 months.

What if I do not speak English?

How much does it cost?
