We had the privilege of welcoming the Minister of Social Development and Disability Issues, Carmel Sepuloni MP, to ATWC on 10th July 2018.
The Minister visited Granger Grove, our residential family care programme, and spoke to the mothers and staff on site. She then fielded questions about many issues that impact ATWC and the work we do on a daily basis.
The Granger Grove mums listened as Hon Sepuloni addressed some of the challenges that they have to deal with and she explained how the Government proposes to help them moving forward.
It was inspiring when Renee, one of the resident mums, felt confident to share her story with everyone who had gathered to meet the Minister. Renee explained how her time at Granger Grove had taught her to be a good parent and role model for her children. She is now so happy that all her children are back in her care after an extended period apart.
It was a very positive morning and we really appreciated Hon Carmel Sepuloni making the time to come to ATWC. We are excited about the possibility of working even closer with the MSD in the future.
