Improving access to urban and regional early childhood services

This resource sheet looks at how to improve access to early childhood services for Indigenous Australians living in urban and regional centres.

It examines the barriers and facilitators to service access, at the individual-, provider-, program-, neighbourhood-, and cultural-level. It outlines what works, what doesn't, and what further research is needed, illustrated with case studies of promising programs in Australia.

This report was produced by AIFS staff for the Closing the Gap Clearinghouse. The Clearinghouse was a Council of Australian Governments’ initiative jointly funded by all Australian Governments. The Australian Institute of Health and Welfare in collaboration with the Australian Institute of Family Studies was funded from 2009 to 2014 to deliver the Clearinghouse.
