State of Murrindindi’s Children report

Berry Street is undertaking a “State of Murrindindi’s Children report” which aims to collect and collate data on the health and wellbeing of children living in Murrindindi Shire.

As part of this initiative, two community forums (facilitated by Anne Leadbeater) have been planned for June. The aim of the forums is to reach a good understanding of the issues the community want covered in the report, including what specific data sets may be useful and to determine what data may be available from the community and from funded agencies.
