Parenting and professional support in the Pilbara.

Build your knowledge and confidence with Pilbara Families Building Pilbara Communities (PFBPC).

Ngala has been working, with the support of BHP, since 2012, to build and assist ongoing capacity as well as provide expertise to services working with families in Port Hedland and Newman. PFBPC increases and provides access to appropriate support services for families living in the Pilbara with young children, with the ultimate aim of reducing barriers that prevent families from moving to or remaining within the region.

PFBPC takes requests from the community, then runs sessions with its community partners. Each visit brings education and training. Community partners in the region include, The YMCA, EPIC and the Child and Parent Centre in Hedland.

For the ease of access for Pilbara families, consults and webinars are also available.

Partnering with EPIC and supported by BHP, Ngala will be in Hedland from 25 – 29 October 2021 to provide parent and professional education workshops and helpline sessions around the community. See the full program below and book in using the links on the flyers.
