South Eastern Sydney and the Let's Read program

Let’s Read SESLHD is partnering with key local services including Child and Family Health nurses, childcare centres, supported playgroups and local libraries to convey the messages of the program to parents and caregivers. Local services will launch the program in their communities with every child receiving a book as a gift and the parents and caregivers will receive the parents’ tip sheets.
