For many years now Tweed Heads Bowls Club has supported Shaping Outcomes in many different ways, including cash donations, fundraising prizes and BBQ lunches for the families who are involved with the program.
Shaping outcomes is a non-profit community organisation and registered National Disability Insurance Scheme (NDIS) provider. They offer flexible and personalised early childhood intervention programs and services, that build on the strengths and increase the abilities of children with disabilities or delays. Working as a team with their families and the community surrounding them to help them grow to their capacity.
The team at Shaping Outcomes celebrate the differences in each child, coordinating a service package that best suits a child’s needs and funding. Ms Amber Thorley, Shaping Outcomes Community Relations Manager said “Our programs and services are consistent with early childhood education, inclusion and disability philosophies. We utilise interaction through play and daily routines, to promote growth and development in children which create a foundation for future learning in schooling systems, and life. Teaching and helping children and their families develop the skill they need to take part in everyday activities within their families and their community”. Ms Thorley went on to say “The support that is provided by the Tweed Heads Bowls Club makes not only a real difference to the children in the program but to their parents and families. We would like to reiterate our thanks on behalf of everyone here at Shaping Outcomes and from the children and families that directly benefited from your support”.
