In the last few months, Anglican Family Care has partnered with many groups and organisations in our local community and participated in a range of events.
Some of the events we were involved in include our Family/Whānau workers Cathy Donald and Natasha Teasdale, from our Family Start programme participated in a teaching project with the Sociology, Gender and Social Work Department at the University of Otago. They presented two lectures to third and fourth year students over two days in April reflecting on their work and how Family Start works in practice from a professional and client point of view. The feedback from the students was that it was very valuable to hear the client’s voice. Both the University and Anglican Family Care see this work as a great learning experience from all perspectives and we hope to continue this relationship.
In June, Family/Whānau workers Cathy Donald and Robyn Appleton also attended a forum at The Hub in South Dunedin where they discussed the Family Start programme to mentors at the Breastfeeding Group.
These are only a few examples of the great work our committed and highly qualified team are doing.
