Any children staying at Vinchez Family Refuge, Allambie Refuge and Allambie Outreach Housing can access our service. Times and days will differ depending on the age of the child.

Where is Mingaletta located?

Mingaletta is located within the Macarthur Local Government Area and operates Monday afternoon and throughout the day on Tuesday, Wednesday and Thursday.  Due to the nature of some services provided we keep our location confidential and address will be advised to the person we are assisting at time of confirming accommodation.

Who can benefit from Mingaletta?

Mingaletta takes a flexible and individual approach with every child. We have trained childcare workers with contacts within community to support each child and parent accessing the service. If we cannot help, we may know who can.

Can I volunteer for Mingaletta?

Due to the location of Mingaletta and under the Anti-discrimination Act, the program can only be supported by female staff and volunteers with appropriate experience.

And as the program works directly with children all staff and volunteers will require a Working with Children Check before starting.
