Latest Information

myView App

The Department of Communities, Child Protection & Family Support Division, is proud to introduce its new myView app for young people in care.

The app was developed in collaboration with young people in care and in response to their feedback that this kind of option would provide them with an accessible and effective way to get information, stay safe and communicate with case managers using technology in a safe and friendly environment.  They can also raise worries, concerns or complaints, and there is a My Story section where young people can securely store photos and entries about important events in their lives.

The adults surrounding young people will play a major role in encouraging them to use this new pathway and to speak up about the things that are important to them.  So the support and encouragement of carers, families and community sector organisations is pivotal and will be very much appreciated.

Any queries or concerns can be raised with Judith Garsed, Advocate for Children in Care on 0429 086 508 or at Judith.garsed@communities.wa.gov.au

Bright Tomorrow's App

 A child’s brain is a remarkable little creature… forming over a million neural connections every second they’re actively engaged. Meaningful moments, early and often, build young brains. 

The Bright Tomorrows app gives parents and carers the tools they need to help build and develop their children’s brains and to help them be healthy, happy kids.

Developed by child health experts, the tips or brain building ‘moments’ in the app are tailored to you and your child, easily fitting into your everyday life.

For more information, visit brightomorrows.org.au.

Download the app by searching for Bright Tomorrows in the App Store or Google Play Store. Personalise the app to your family’s unique needs, try out the moments suggested especially for you and have fun using these moments with your family!
