This paper describes the findings from a two-year research project which investigated ways to support culturally and linguistically diverse (CALD) families with very young children accessing child care services. The families resided in low income areas and were deemed to be at risk of social isolation and related problems. The research findings showed positive outcomes associated with disseminating information, and developing networks amongst families. The project demonstrates that services catering to families with young children can be effective entry points for long-term health promotion.
