Kirrip Playgroup

Kirrip provides a culturally safe space for Aboriginal children and families.

Playgroups offer opportunities for children from birth until school age to develop and practise new skills, make new friends, gain self-confidence and develop physically, socially, emotionally and intellectually, while with their parents or carers.

Parents and carers also have opportunities to build friendships with other families  within the community and enjoy some time out of the house. During playgroups all families assist with the setting up and packing up of the group and behaviour management of their own children.

Carers Support Group

Kirrip’s’ Carers support group is run by carers for carers of children and young people in out-of-home care, including kinship and foster care. This group will provide carers with parenting information, offer peer support, share experiences, learn from each other and enable you to manage the impacts and stresses of being in a caring role more effectively.

Youth Program

Kirrip’s youth group is a place for young people to socialise in a culturally safe and healthy environment. The group will help to build self-confidence and self-respect while allowing the youth to become successful role models for others. Activities that will engage our koori youth will renew their ties to culture and respect for elders, while building lasting friendships.
