Abstract: In 2006, after extensive community consultations, Salisbury Communities for Children (SCfC) formed a representative group to develop a Family Centre and other activities in Ingle Farm. An initial task of the group (which consisted of representatives from non-government organisations, government organisations, staff, and community members) was to hold a focus group to determine an agreed list of priority principles. These were:
• Inclusion: respecting cultures and differences; acceptance of differences (families); cultural diversity in parenting practices
• Fun
• Universal: welcoming and supportive environment; appreciating and accepting parents
• Encouraging parent child attachment
• Balance between universal and targeted programs; assisting the families who were the most disadvantaged to access
• Collaboration; networking with other groups/linking
• Empowering parents to develop community; families experiencing community & contributing to communities.
