The THYRVE Pilot Project will support and represent Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander community-controlled early years services to deliver high quality, responsive, accessible and culturally strong supports for our children, families, and communities.
Initially the Pilot will work in three States – New South Wales (NSW), Western Australia (WA) and Victoria. The THRYVE Project will respond to local priorities to strengthen service design and governance, delivery and compliance in service quality, workforce development and training. It will also offer critical support to access sustainable funding.
State THRYVE Intermediaries
The THRYVE Pilot is establishing the State-wide THRYVE Intermediaries for Aboriginal early-intervention services across NSW, WA, and Victoria. The SNAICC National Intermediary Pilot Team will be engaging with Commonwealth and Pilot state governments and services, to seek advocacy, partnerships and to enable the collective voice to amplify the Pilot’s priorities for the community-controlled early years sector in Australia.
Co-design process and opportunities
In each jurisdiction, the SNAICC National Intermediary Pilot Team will facilitate the co-design process with the Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander community-controlled early years services. A model will be established for tailored on-the-ground support and services that reflect local needs and priorities to support local ownership, leadership and self-determination.
THRYVE NSW is the first chapter to get off the ground and is working with 17 Aboriginal-led early years services in NSW. In March 2022, THRYVE NSW came together to refresh the agreed strategy and actions from the initial co-design process.

THRYVE WA and Victoria
The THRYVE Intermediaries in Western Australia and Victoria are in the establishment phase.
The THRYVE WA co-design process commenced in February 2022 with the WA community-controlled early years services sector coming together in Broome. A second co-design workshop in March 2022 worked towards finalising the WA co-design model. THRYVE VIC is holding its first co-design workshop in March.
