Blue Mountains Consortium
The Blue Mountains Consortium
(BMC) is a group of organizations committed to providing the best possible support for children and families in the Blue Mountains, particularly those that are considered vulnerable because of their circumstances. BMC has previously delivered the Department of Family and Community Services' Brighter Futures Program in the Blue Mountains, in partnership with Wesley Mission.
The following organizations belong to the Blue Mountains Consortium
- Connect Child and Family Services (Lead agency) -
- Blue Mountains Family Support Service - Case work
- Gateway Family Services - Case work and parent group work
Organisations that make up the BMC work within a strengths-based, relational framework that focuses on the intersection of significant relationships, to promote the wellbeing of children and their families. They have developed a collaborative approach to case management that is used in their work with each other and across the broader service sector. BMC members' practice is also underpinned by the belief that children's wellbeing and that of their families, is supported by strong connections to their community.
