The Lowitja Institute Announce Support for the Bigiswun Kid Project

The Lowitja Institute Announce Support for the Bigiswun Kid Project

The Lowitja Institute announced 20 research projects they are providing funding for and one of them is ours. The Bigiswun Kid Project.

This project will follow-up the participants of the Lililwan Project to understand the wellbeing of adolescents in community. The Bigiswun Kid Project will provide information on longitudinal outcomes for adolescents in remote Aboriginal Australia, identify whether implementation of individual Lililwan Management Plans was achieved, and document difficulties in accessing services. Such information is essential to inform future service planning and provision of specialised support.

The fact that it is genuinely community-initiated and led is the key to the project’s success. It’s not just research for research sake, it’s giving young people a voice and making sure the research has an immediate benefit for the community.”
 – Sue Thomas, Strategic Priority Lead

 

Baya Gawiy Garden to Plate Project

Baya Gawiy Garden to Plate Project

The children and educators at Baya Gawiy  all play a part in the garden to plate project where they help to grow the plants and care and nurture them until they are ready to pick and eat.

The quality of the education and care being delivered to our Fitzroy Valley families is very impressive. We all feel so good when we come into the centre and see such healthy and engaged children all actively participating in learning, while also having a lot of fun.

Great Work Baya Gawiy Team

Early Childhood Supports that help families and connect them to Allied Health teams

Early Childhood Supports that help families and connect them to Allied Health teams

Early Years, the most important years of our lives. Our community navigators and family support workers help to connect families worried about their kids development with Allied Health Professionals. We walk with them to access therapeutic support services. We love working with the KAMS ECS team, we are learning so much from them as they grow our knowledge of effective strategies to support children's development.
