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.
- Advocating state and federal government for a more even distribution of facilities, services and funding for not-for-profit support organisations, which 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.
- The City has a Community Support Services Directory, which is a resource for residents and support workers. It contains the contact details for local support services and agencies and includes information about:
- employment, education and training
- domestic violence
- legal issues
- community support services (counselling, children, youth and family support)
- mental health
- emergency relief and financial support
- youth and community groups.
The directory is available online and as a hard copy from the City's libraries and administration building on Civic Boulevard, Rockingham.
Information in the directory was correct at the time of publication. New or updated service information can be submitted to firstname.lastname@example.org or telephone the Community Support Services Officer on: 9528 0333.
