Administrative history

The Project was funded by the Office of Child Care within the Commonwealth Department for Social Security and sponsored by the Western Australian Department for Community Welfare. It was a pilot program aiming to develop and evaluate a range of services for single parent families with pre-school aged children in the greater Fremantle area. During the pilot period (1976-1979) the Project was evaluated by a research team from the University of Western Australia. From 1981 the Project came under the direction of the City of Fremantle and became known as the (Fremantle) One Parent Centre.

Administrative history

The (Fremantle) One Parent Centre was established as part of the Parent Education Assistance Project (Agency No. 419) in 1976. In 1981 it came under the direction of the City of Fremantle and in 1988 the Department of Community Services oversaw it. The Centre provided parent education and family support services for lone parents of pre schoolers in the greater Fremantle area (including the Cities of Cockburn, Fremantle, Melville and Towns of East Fremantle, Mosman Park and Kwinana). Activities included programs for parents, assistance with problems, information on community resources, counselling, child care, a toy and book lending library.
