Released: Connections News - Autumn Edition

The Connections News, Autumn Edition is now available.

Inside you will be able to read about Connections' successful funding bid to establish a Family Links program in the Southern Metropolitan area, which is designed to support children and families who have a loved one incarcerated. Family Links aims to reduce the social and emotional impact of parental imprisonment on children and provide a coordinated response to an aspect of family support which previously has not existed in the area. 

You will also be able to read about how successful our 2016 Chrismas Food and Gift Appeal was and how we were able to help provide a happier and brighter Christmas to over 450 families. Over $100,000 in donations made the 2016 appeal one of our best on record. Thank you for your support. 

We also highlight Connections' Home-Start program and ask any of our supporters if they are able to spare two hours a week, have parenting experience and would like to help other families build stronger relationships with their children. If you are able to help, our Home-Start coordinator wants to hear from you. If someone you know would be suitable for this important volunteer role, please let them know. 

Thank you for your continued interest and support for our work.
