We are thrilled to be the recipient of a 2017 Community Group Grant from the Waitaki District Council towards Oceans, our grief and loss programme for local children and young people.
Oceans is for children aged 5-15 years who are missing someone in their lives. This initiative helps children through the pain and loss of a parent or someone significant in their life through death or separation. In some situations a child or young person needs support for transitioning through foster family relationships.
The Community Group Grant will help us with the delivery costs of this project, including programme resources, brochure printing costs, mobile phone costs, training and supervision costs, and volunteer expenses.
30 children and young people took part in Oceans in 2016 with very positive results. We are very pleased to be continuing the programme in 2017.
If you would like to donate to the Oceans programme, please contact us on 0800 FAM CARE or email us.
