A GROUP of young girls in residential care were thrilled to receive a Vuly Ultra medium-sized trampoline recently when Vuly Play decided to donate one of the products to an ac.care therapeutic strength-based care home.
The homes are staffed 24/7 by ac.care to care for and support children who are unable to live with their biological parents.
ac.care’s child and youth residential care service provides medium to long term accommodation and support to young people aged 10 – 18 years under the Guardianship of the Chief Executive of the Department for Child Protection for whom foster or kinship care places are not available.
The service provides young people with a safe therapeutic environment until they are able to transition into a longer term living arrangement, such as foster or kinship care or an independent living program.
A trampoline had been on the wishlist of the girls living in one of our Mount Gambier homes, who were excited when the donation arrived and was set up in the yard for them to enjoy.
“It was wonderful to receive this donation to provide something special for the girls living in our residential care home and they have been regularly enjoying the fun provided by the trampoline after school and at weekends,” therapeutic strength-based care clinical manager Sandra Manser said.
Support from businesses such as Vuly Play, which donated and delivered the item, increases our impact at a time when people in our community need our care more than ever.
