Hunter Networks of Practice

Hunter Networks of Practice works with a comprehensive range of Child and Family Practitioners and Service Providers to promote the development of coordinated evidence based and accessible services to families and young children.

Networks of Practice initiatives include: network and practice forums, conference events, learning and development activities and information sharing through e-communication bulletins and newsletters.

The Hunter Networks of Practice covers 10 Local Government Areas (LGA) including Upper Hunter, Singleton, Port Stephens, Newcastle, Muswellbrook, Maitland, Lake Macquarie, Dungog, Cessnock and MidCoast (which covers the Great Lakes, Manning and Gloucester regions).
