DF is a culturally responsive program within DC that provides intensive, cultural, practical support for Aboriginal Mums (& Dads) who are expecting (6-8 weeks from due date) or with children aged 0-5 years old across the Inner West/City of Sydney LGA's. The program is designed to disrupt and prevent FDV, homelessness, incarceration, substance misuse and other social challenges experienced at disproportionate levels by mob.
