In 2017 we were successful in receiving a grant from the Newcastle Permanent Charitable Foundation valued at $39,246 to establish the Building Blocks Resource Library. The grant has enabled Firstchance to purchase therapeutic resources and equipment to loan to families.

The building blocks library will provide additional support to families through the extension of learning and development opportunities. We are able to offer families the opportunity to trial and test often expensive therapeutic equipment that is essential in enhancing their child’s skill development.

We are overwhelmed by the generosity of the Charitable Foundation. This grant enables us to diversify the way we reach and provide therapy, which in turn enables children to fully participate in their family, school, sport and the community setting they wish to be a part of.
