For over 20 years, Weave’s Kool Kids Program has provided consistent, trusted support and genuine care to the children, families and communities we walk alongside.

Weave Kool Kids Program works with children, young people and families who face complex social issues such as poverty, family breakdown and mental health issues that are symptomatic of the impacts of systemic disadvantage and intergenerational trauma. 88% of the children and young people who are part of the Weave Kool Kids Program are Aboriginal and/or Torres Strait Islander and the program is grounded in holistic practice that supports Aboriginal people on their individual and collective healing journeys.

Focused on resilience & wellbeing

Weave Kool Kids Program provides long-term connection to positive relationships, and support for children to learn, grow and develop together with their peers in their community. Through Weave Kool Kids, children and young people engage in fun, skills-based activities that highlight their strengths, improve social and emotional wellbeing, foster respect and nurture resilience.

At Weave Kool Kids Program, every child has the opportunity to:

  • Engage in recreational activities like overnight camps, bushwalking, rock climbing, and cultural excursions
  • Work closely with our Advocates to improve their social health and wellbeing
  • Build a stronger connection to their culture
  • Foster strength and resilience in every area of life

Weave Kool Kids Namatjira Program

“Nama is hands down one of my favourite programs. There are a lot of kids that are staying inside, we’re here trying to encourage them to get outside, run around, be active. I just want them to be themselves, be the kids they need to be and also create a safe space for them to come into.” – Beau Foster, Kool Kids Support Worker
