Media, the news and our approach to public commentary

Caroline Chisholm Society is an engaged member of our community. We work in Moonee Valley, Caroline Springs and Shepparton, and represent our local communities in state-wide forums. We are particularly concerns about issues facing expectant and new mothers and their families, including pregnancy, early parenting, childcare and kindergarten, social isolation, perinatal mental health, poverty, homelessness and family violence.

It's production, being led by Aileen, was inspired by pg 27 of 'Caroline Chisholm: The Emigrant's Friend - Aussie Heroes' written by Tania McCartney and illustrated by Pat Reynolds.
