Better Communities for Children Leadership Network
The Better Communities for Children Leadership Network (BCFCLN) is an innovative network of local and regional leaders.
The network is comprised of early year’s services and childhood services that formulate and deliver a Child and Family Wellbeing Strategic Plan for the Mansfield Shire.
Instead of producing a standalone Early Years Plan the Mansfield Shire Council works with partners to create an integrated plan that improves health, safety, wellbeing and social belonging of all children between 0-12 years of age.
The planning cycle follows and is informed by the statutory Municipal Public and Health and Wellbeing Plan 2017-2021:
The BCFCLN set up a website with a list of services available to families living in Mansfield Shire:
