Community Support Services
How we can help
The City of Rockingham Community Support Services provides support to vulnerable local people in the community. We do this by:
- Providing information sessions and community events on important issues such as suicidal thoughts, homelessness, mental health, family and domestic violence, substance abuse, elder abuse, reducing poverty and social isolation.
- Addressing social isolation in the community by helping people to connect with their local community through programs such as Rockingham Connect, Pop Up Communities, Social Connector Luncheon Group, Baldivis Bookclub, and Pop-Up Communities Seniors.
- Advocating state and federal government for a more even distribution of facilities, services and funding for not-for-profit support organisations that provide services to vulnerable people.
- Chairing the Kwinana Rockingham Action for Today's Youth (KRAFTY), Community Support Service Provider (CSSP), Rockingham/Kwinana Family and Domestic Violence (FDV), and Rockingham/Kwinana Homelessness Interagency Group (RKHIG) meetings, where all Community Support Service Providers share information, form partnerships and advocate providing optimum services for vulnerable communities.
