About the organisation
Established in 1957, the Craig Family Centre (CFC) is a community-based organisation providing support services to individuals and families within the Ashburton and surrounding areas. The Centre has a strong community development focus and actively encourages participation and involvement.
The Centre offers many programs including childcare, kindergarten, a neighbourhood house, support programs, community development and leisure activities. CFC is committed to working with, and for, the community through information sharing, mutual support, and community participation in local and social issues. Membership is open to people of all ages, abilities, backgrounds and cultural groups.
The CFC is unique as it co-locates Childcare and Early Learning services with Maternal & Child Health and a Community Health Service. We are a recognised referral point for support agencies dealing with vulnerable children in the local area, and neighbourhood house programs also provide soft entry points for supported childcare and maintain networks of social support services through dedicating resources to co-ordination.
