Being in out-of-home care can sometimes feel isolating. These events, and the opportunity to meet new friends and have a fun day full of activities while sharing their own stories can help create a sense of belonging. Connection Events provide a safe environment to enable and support the building of natural friendships, and for children and young people to find they are not alone in their care experience.
Connection events aren’t just for the kids too! Carers and workers are welcome to get involved to foster positive relationships with the children in their care. Whether it be Easter parties, Christmas parties or Sibling connection events, these free, fun-filled days allow children the chance to connect, play and delight in activity-packed fun for all involved!
