Community First Step is a non-for-profit organisation that has been operating in the heart of Fairfield for almost 45 years. Today their organisation is growing and encompasses, disability services, children services including, occasional care for 0-5 year olds and before and after school care and youth and family services including case work and community development. One program that will be introduced is the ‘Homework Club’. It will encompass after school care services for 20 children and be accessed by children from Fairfield, Carramar, Villawood, Old Guildford and Yennora. The low socio-economic status of the community results in a low level of access to computer, internet and on-line learning opportunities in the home. Our donation of $12,168 will help to subside the costs of resources, data plans, educators and subscriptions to numeracy and literacy skills applications. This program will ensure targeted support to children for continuous and ongoing homework support.
