Our Tuart House facility service receives a real boost to client suggested services subsequent to winning a $500 application grant with the City of Busselton.
Despite what seems to be ongoing chaos and uncertainty regarding the outbreak and spread of Novel coronavirus (Covid-19), it's news like this that reminds us of the good we work for in the world and as of last week, our Tuart House clients were the lucky recipients.
As part of the therapeutic group programs run by this facility, clients are encouraged to present feedback on the types of activities they'd like to experience or future skills they'd like to learn; and this time round there was a strong preference for all things health and fitness focussed.
Following a declined request for the free entry of Tuart House clients at one of Busselton's local leisure centres, women's support services coordinator Vanessa Rennie tenaciously applied for the Inclusive community participation fund- which was quickly deemed successful.
Aqua aerobics, swimming and gym classes are now on the cards as clients start looking into activities to jump into the next coming months – (prospective to the contamination confidence of the virus).
As part of our organisation's purpose we aim to instil equality in situations where the value has been compromised and by obtaining this grant our dedicated team can continue creating opportunities, providing invaluable support and helping restore the confidence of Domestic Violence survivors to ensure their families have access to the same things other women in our community have.
What a great win - we're excited to see how much fun these ladies get up to!
