2019 Appeal

Help us create a nature playground and native garden at our Amelia House respite home.

Rather than simply focusing on treatments that are absolutely vital in development, Senses Australia cares about the time spent between therapy and care sessions.

Therefore, we are asking for your help to create a nature playground and native garden that links nature with play and holds so many positive benefits. Research has shown that nature playgrounds can help develop gross-motor skills due to more irregular and challenging spaces. They allow adults and kids to learn how to assess and negotiate risk but also how to build their confidence and enjoy nature and the outdoors.
To further expand this experience our vision includes exciting things such as:

  • A veggie patch to grow your own vegetables and herbs
  • A chicken coop
  • As well as a rabbit hutch

Every donation brings us one step further in expanding our services to the outside world. We deeply hope that together with your support we can create this city escape for our clients and their families.  Thank you!
