Information and Links

Often it is difficult to understand what services are available to suit your needs and how to access them. Our information and linking services can connect people requiring guidance with the appropriate CareWest service, as well as linking with other organisations available in the community.

Early Links

If your child has been diagnosed with a disability, is in the process of obtaining a diagnosis, or you’re simply concerned about your child’s development, the Early Links program can provide tailored support and guidance for you and your family.

If your child is aged 0-9 with a disability, disorder or developmental delay, then this program can help you access mainstream and specialist services. Our staff will listen to your specific concerns and make you aware of the relevant services available in your area.
We understand that every family is different, which is why Early Links will work with you to recognise and build on your own family’s strengths. Through information and referral, we’ll work with you to develop your existing support networks and create new ones that meet your family’s goals.
Early Links looks at the many ways children with a disability can fully participate, be part of the community, and plan for the future.
