Hon Stephen Dawson MLC presents Kalparrin with a cheque from Lotterywest for $126,000 to support ‘Find Your Tribe’ parent support program
It certainly began to feel a lot like Christmas here at Kalparrin when we were presented with a cheque for $126,000 from Lotterywest to support the introduction of Kalparrin’s new Find Your Tribe parent support program.
Previously trialled during the height of the COVID-19 lockdown, Find Your Tribe received overwhelming enthusiasm from participants, and Kalparrin subsequently applied for funding through Lotterywest’s COVID-19 relief fund initiative and were successful.
With the combined support of both Lotterywest and Impact100 WA, the program will become a core part of Kalparrin’s family support service.
Find Your Tribe is an eight-week video support program designed to reach more families across Western Australia with the aim of:
- Keeping families strong and connected
- Building networks and communities amongst families raising children of similar ages, stages, diagnoses and/or locations
- Providing professional support and assistance from expert speakers across a range of subject matters
- Empowering families and building resilient, confident parents.
Our sincere thanks to Lotterywest – we are completely thrilled. Thank you also to Hon Stephen Dawson MLC for coming to morning tea and meeting some of the fabulous parents who participated in our pilot program earlier in the year ❤
