Family Friendly Shops Project:
Family Friendly Shops is a joint initiative between Olivia's Place and local businesses keen to offer a more family friendly community. We believe that families should feel welcome in all areas of our community, and we also want to encourage families to support local businesses - which are also usually run by local families!
Local businesses, of any variety, can choose to participate in this project by displaying any combination of 4 family friendly services stickers, alerting families as to what facilities/services they can use - obligation free - within their business. The sticker system is an easy, eye-catching way to let families in the area know that services like a parent room for feeding or a toilet for your little one are available within without the need to make a purchase.
This project is in its beginning stages and we are always welcoming new businesses to participate. Our long term aim is to have a website and searchable app available for families to download to their smart phones, making it easy to locate a needed service nearby to their location. Currently the project is only launched in the Baw Baw Shire, but if you reside in another area and would like to help implement this please get in touch.
Check out the Warragul Business Group App that has a heap of info and deals related to local shops and retail as well as a link to help you find your nearest family friendly shop option with parent room facilities in either Drouin, Yarragon, Warragul and Trafalgar - http://www.warragulbusinessgroup.org.au/new-shop-warragul-app/
