April Jones sitting in the room that is adorned with her beautiful desert cotton prints on wallpaper, this is a new medium for us.

It is so good to look around our different work spaces and see the products our women have created.

Children lovingly pamper their Mummy’s, Jaja, Ogees, Aunties and other carers at our hand spa booth

Creating Welcoming Spaces

Creating Welcoming Spaces

The spaces we work in communicate a lot to the women and their children who come in to Marnin to access supports or just to sit and connect with others or check out the 1000 (many more than 1000 ) dresses :) 

 

If we are able to create spaces that are calming, welcoming and therapeutically designed we are in a good place to have a positive impact on women and their families engaging with the different teams across the organisation .

Connecting to Country

Connecting to Country

Connecting to Country does wonders for our wellbeing, sense of connection and enjoyment of life. The team have been taking young people on country , listening to what they need and finding ways to support them. Sometimes the best things in life are so simple, we have to make them happen more often, to build our strength and resilience. 

 

We are once again reminded of the healing power of Country.

Endota Spa Collaboration

Endota Spa Collaboration

Our Collaboration with Endota Spa is bringing us lots of joy and positives, not just for the artists who are proud to see their work presented in such a beautiful way but throughout the organisation you can smell calming essential oils and see the lovely soft lighting from the diffusers they have donated to us. We enjoy quality nurturing experiences at a collective care session or nurture night, painting nails, soaking our feet in a foot spa and rubbing in hand, foot and face creams. Its such a boost when we receive these gorgeous products.
