TAX APPEAL 2020 - EXPANSION OF OUTDOOR CRAFTS AND SKILLS PROGRAM           

We are very grateful for Warrah’s supporters, who have assisted us to achieve so many wonderful initiatives over the years through our Appeals. Your generosity benefits and enriches the many lives of people with disability that Warrah supports. 

Having the opportunity to pursue engaging and practical skills is an important part of our unique approach at Warrah. In recent times, through our newly developed approach using traditional crafts and arts, we have initiated weaving, wood work and mud brick building, which has enabled the people we support to recognise their capabilities and positively contribute in an enjoyable and productive way. 

For this appeal, we are seeking your support to expand our practical crafts program into other areas. Our vision is to introduce blacksmithing forge work, clay and pottery making and leatherwork which requires the purchase of new equipment and materials. Students and adult participants from Community Support Services will engage in these new activities, with resources and training shared across the organisation.

There is much research to show that our people learn and thrive when engaged in experiential learnings that engage the hands in a rhythmic activity. Our children and adults experience the journey of concept, design, execution and completion through undertaking practical craft-based activities. This learning provides purpose, meaning, therapeutic benefits and an opportunity to build social connections. Our teachers and support workers observe remarkable improvements in confidence, socialisation and self-regulation as a result of immersing adults and children in these opportunities.

By making a tax deductible donation you will be helping to make this vision a reality.

Thank you for thinking once again of Warrah this financial year!
