Charity Sponsor


Every day, in thousands of homes across Australia, children are exposed to family violence. Activities 4 All aims to provide extracurricular activities for children who are in the process of recovery from long-term exposure to violence. Organised activities such as sports, music and camps can all help these children to develop new ways of relating to others which can then lead to better school outcomes – both in the classroom and in the playground. By participating in healthy, positive, social activities where they feel cared for, means that traumatised children who have lived in abusive environments are given a ray of hope that their futures can still have a chance be as bright as can be. www.sharethedignity.com.au


 

What’s On 4 holds these annual awards to encourage good practice, reward innovation, further raise standards and generate awareness of our fabulous activities and classes and those individual experts involved who make such a difference to so many parents and children across the Australia!

If you would like to be part of encouraging good practice in children’s activities across Australia and support our 2018 Awards with sponsorship then, we’d love to hear from you.
