August 2014 Media Coverage

The Warragul Business Group pledges financial support to assist us in bridging the budget gap to lease premises close to town, and provide a parenting room in place of the recently relocation of Family Children's Services away from the centre of town.  They encourage other businesses to do the same, and the Warragul Gazette  announces their intention to donate the same amount towards our cause.  Warragul Gazette coverage 5.8.14

June 2014 Media Coverage

With the soon to occur relocation of Family & Children's Services to Normanby St, and with it the town's parent room facilities, locals are starting to identify Olivia's Place as a possibility to fill the void.  We determine that the need is indeed there, and commence a search for rental premises near to the town centre.
