Thank you Vuly!

Our foster care team would like to send out a heartfelt thank you to everyone at Vuly Play.

Vuly Play have very kindly donated an Ultra Trampoline to our foster care program. Not only are they great fun, keeping kids entertained for hours, trampolines offer many health benefits of outdoor play.

Foster carers make an enormous difference in a child’s life, giving a child the care and support she or he needs to grow, thrive and have a successful future. Generous support from community partners such as Vulu Play helps us strengthen families, and lets our families know that the wider community cares about and for them. Our carers do an amazing job, and these wonderful acts of kindness are a great way to help show our appreciation.

We are always in need of more families and individuals to open up their hearts and homes. Are you interested in learning more about becoming a foster carer?
