A huge congratulations to the Western VACCA Yawa Placement Team, winners of the Residential Care Award at Resi ROCKS 2022!
The award is given to the team that has worked together to achieve significant and positive outcomes for children and young people living in residential care.
The team is Quinnie Kim, Ashleigh Templar. Meagan Brewin, Geraldine Lee, Jade Urquhart, Natalie Smith, Melissa Evans. We're thrilled to see you all get recognition for your hard work.
"I’m so glad that the willingness of our Resi staff to be open to working creatively and differently to enable Aboriginal children to be reunited with family has been recognised in this way. It has been lovely for the program and the organisation to get this well-deserved recognition. One of the notable aspects of this model was the cross-VACCA support and input, in particular from Family Finding, the PP, and the ACHT. A great example of what we can do when we all work and advocate together." - Faorligh Hunter (Director- Statewide Residential Services)
