Respite have been successful in our application for funds from the Community Support Levy to purchase a Fire engine for the playground area at the children’s unit. We were also successful with our application to the Telstra Kids Fund Grant for a Swing seat. Both items have now been installed and are quickly becoming a source of fun and photo opportunities! We are now currently working on ideas for a backyard patio and sensory garden for the Adults unit. Email us at info@mosaictas.org.au  if would like to assist us with donations for the project.
