  • The Australian Nurse-Family Partnership Program (ANFPP) – ANFPP National Support Service

    This is a federally funded project through the Department of Health. It is a nurse-led home visiting program that supports women pregnant with an Aboriginal and/or Torres Strait Islander child to help them become the best mum possible. ANFPP mums are offered support and guidance during early pregnancy and on into their baby's infancy and toddlerhood. The ANFPP is an important early investment in the future of Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander children in local communities.

    The functional requirements of the ANFPP National Support Service are to:

    • Provide strong clinical leadership for the program
    • Deliver workforce training and coaching
    • Provide service development and organisational support
    • Provide continuous quality improvement support
    • Provide information monitoring and analysis
    • Identify and contribute to research activities including evaluation of the ANFPP
    • Provide strategic leadership and policy support
    • Ensure strong cultural safety within the ANFPP
