The focus here at Strong Kids Strong Centre is about gathering the local data we know is critical for ensuring Alice Springs is a child-friendly community.
We spend our whole working lives in a non-sharing environment but being a part of Opportunity Child provides permission to share and ask.
Connecting Community for Kids backbone leader Jane Miller shared this reflection on the relationships she had formed and connections made since being part of Opportunity Child.
Logan Together is a Queensland collective impact initiative. It’s everybody who cares about Logan’s kids and since we were established, we have done a whole lot of growing.
As we grew, we wanted to share the love more and more with our partners and community.
