Our Annual Public Meeting and Excellence Awards on November 14 shared highlights from the year and celebrated outcomes from clients, volunteers, carers and staff.
Celebrating childhood this Children's Week
Evan, aged three, entered foster care along with his little brother as he was unable to live safely at home. He had experienced trauma from an early age and this affected his behaviour. Life was challenging for Evan. He was a vulnerable little boy who felt lost and alone, and did not trust adults.
Listening to voices around Australia through MacKillop's RAP consultation
MacKillop staff travelled to Port Hedland in the Pilbara region (in the north of Western Australia) in September to consult with the local community as part of our Reconcilation Action Plan (RAP) development process.
