Thrive Family Services
We partnered with Thrive Family Services to provide funding for Keeping Children Safe - a group program to be offered in the Blue Mountains to promote care, protection and safety of children and young people. It will run for six weeks and benefit families at risk of family violence and other child protection issues.
Purpose of the program:
To enable parents/careers to recognise violence, abuse and neglect
To understand the effects on children
To make changes to prevent child abuse and family violence.

Elizabeth Evatt Community Legal Centre
Elizabeth Evatt Community Legal Centre offers free and confidential legal advice, serving the areas of Blue Mountains and Central Tablelands. A large percentage of their work is around issues connecting with family violence. They also give talks and run workshops for the community.
Recently Portland Catholic Social Justice Group gave a very generous donation to the Centre in order to enable two staff members to attend a most informative and beneficial National Conference in Brisbane; results of which will flow over into our community.
Provided information to organisations re available grants for which they can apply.
Researched available grants and pooled information with members of Blue Mountains CAVA (Coalition Against Violence and Abuse)
Researched ways and opportunities for fundraising.
Had conversations with many relevant agencies and personnel in the Blue Mountains to ascertain their needs.
