Opportunity Child works with a growing number of communities across Australia that are focused on improving early childhood outcomes and intentionally working together to create the conditions that children need to thrive.
We provide practical support to ‘backbone’ teams and community structures.
We use our social innovation hub to help communities find solutions to complex issues.
