Aboriginal Family Support
For many years the Midvale Hub has been employing local Aboriginal people to provide support for local families. Our dedicated team ensure that programs offered at the Hub are culturally appropriate and meet the needs of local Aboriginal families.
Midvale Hub Sites at Middle Swan and Clayton View
Our Hub sites at Middle Swan and Clayton View were designed by a local Aboriginal Reference Group. The sites were originally federally funded as part of the Closing the Gap initiative. Formerly known as the Swan Children and Family Centres, the sites are part of the Midvale Hub.
