The Women's and Children's Health Network works closely with other agencies to ensure new arrival families are aware of what support is available and how to access services.
If clients have difficulty speaking English, and would like the assistance of an interpreter, Child and Family Health Services is able to ensure one is available, free of charge.
Bi-lingual community educators
For some cultural groups, such as Sudanese and Vietnamese families, Child and Family Health Services employs bi-lingual community educators who can work directly with families in their own language and in culturally appropriate ways.
