Team LOYAL - Zoo and Snooze
It's that time of year again. On Friday August 5th, select members of the Loyal I.T. team are giving up their bed for the night and sleeping on the cold hard ground all to raise funds for Coast Shelter. Coast Shelter is a not-for-profit charity based on the NSW Central Coast which provides accommodation and support programs for people who are homeless or at risk of homelessness.
Held every year in the middle of Winter up at the Reptile Park at Somersby, it has 2 main aims. They are to raise funds and to raise awareness through the business community, of the issues surrounding homelessness on the Central Coast of NSW. Due to overwhelming support in the past few years, this year Coast Shelter has raised the bar and aims to raise over $100,000.
Our funds goal is $6000.
We have a team of 6 participating – Michael Trimblett, Naomi, Michael Goodwin, Raewyn, Brendan Lewis and ex-employee Brendan Cairns. Each need to raise $1000, so $6000 in total. Please donate to your favourite team member to ensure they get to sleep with the reptiles.
All donations are tax deductible.
We thank you for your support.

Aboriginal Communities to
Co-design Healing Forums.
A series of forums across NSW will give Aboriginal communities the opportunity to discuss the need for healing informed practices with government agencies.
Expressions of interest are now open to Aboriginal communities who would like to co-design an Opportunity Choice Healing Responsibility Empowerment (OCHRE) forum.
Minister for Aboriginal Affairs Leslie Williams said up to six forums will be planned over the coming year.
“These forums flow from the ongoing conversations between Aboriginal people and the NSW Government about how we can best support community led healing,” Mrs Williams said.
The forums, supported by Aboriginal Affairs and the Healing Foundation, will provide an opportunity for Aboriginal communities to engage directly with government and non-government agencies.
“Recognising the impact of trauma on ourselves, our families and communities is the first step towards healing from the intergenerational effects of policies like the Stolen Generations, and this will be covered through the forums,” Healing Foundation CEO Richard Weston said.
Expressions of interest are open to Aboriginal communities in NSW where there is broad community interest and readiness to discuss healing, and where Aboriginal leaders are leading community healing.
Expressions of interest close on 31 August 2016.
