The Centre for U and AMAZE have formed a strategic partnership to increase awareness of autism and provide ETU members and their families access to educational support services.
AMAZE and The Centre for U will offer three major forums in 2020, including:
- Employment and Autism: Webinar 22nd of May 2020
- Raising Autistic Girls Workshop: Webinar 10th of June 2020
- Parents Pamper day at the CFU: Date to be confirmed
Amaze is a charity, non-profit organisation and the peak body for autistic people and their families in Victoria. It commenced operations in 1967 (as the Victorian Autistic Children’s and Adults Association), formed by a group of parents struggling to find resources.
Today Amaze works to create inclusive communities that give voice and opportunity to autistic people and their families. The social impact we wish to make is for a society that respects the dignity of every person on the autism spectrum and offers each of them real opportunities to participate and contribute.
The year-long partnership between the ETU, the Centre for U, and The Fathering Project will support ETU members in their fathering journey. Members will have access to workshops, fathering resources full of strategies and tips and establishing an ETU Dad’s Group for fathers to connect.
About The Fathering Projects
The Fathering Project is the leading social purpose organisation working in over 400 communities across Australia, changing children’s lives by providing programs and resources, tools and support for fathers, father-figures, schools, community organisations and corporates. The Fathering Project works to help dads recognise and relate to their important role as a father and equip them to be the best they can be for their children. More effective fathers and father-figures means a generation of kids with happier, healthier futures. It’s all about the children, studies show that improved fathering can influence a number of positive outcomes across the board including, improved child development, school results, health outcomes and reduces substance abuse, suicide and crime and bullying behaviours, to name a few.
