The KIN Care and Share Project provides much needed specialised equipment to children in need who are on the waiting list for a specific piece of equipment or when their equipment is in need of repairs.
The KIN Care and Share Project began when Twin Towns Community Foundation, therapists and KIN got together to see what was needed in the local community. The need for a specilaised equipment pool was identified.
KIN met with therapist from NCAHS and ADHC to look at what equipment was most needed and then, with the funding sponsorship from TTCF, purchases and catalogued the equipment.
Kids In Need, Families and Therapists would like to ‘ Thank’ the Twin Towns Services Community Foundation for their generosity in financially setting up the KIN, Care & Share Project. And for their understanding of the needs of children with disabilities and serious illness in our local community. The Kids In Need ‘Care & Share’ Equipment Project has been very successful and the equipment is being used by many children. KIN would also like the THANK the Therapists from Northern Rivers Area Health Service and The Dept Ageing, Disability & Home Care for their assistance and expertise in assisting with the Project.
KIN would like to thank the therapists for their continued support and expertise. This project is invaluable and greatly appreciated.
Specialised equipment is in storage shed at Border Storage – Ourimbah Road, Tweed Heads and is also stored and maintained by Helen Keogh from Kindly Move Physiotherapy. Equipment available to therapists to use as needed.
