Outcare as an organisation committed to supporting people to break the cycle of re-offending has also supported the children of prisoners since its inception over 50 years ago, and through Santa’s Workshop we continue that support through our Family Centres and Programs. From small beginnings Santa’s has grown in size, numbers and vision and been able to expand the support it provides children in need across Perth through many other organisations.
Santa’s broadened remit has meant that over fifty charities who work with kids from refuges, supported playgroups and refugee associations also benefit each year from a little bit of Christmas. Santa’s is able to assist these agencies not only in December but all year round as and when the need arises. Just this Christmas Santa’s has supplied over 2,000 gifts distributing them to children in need.
We invite you to enjoy and celebrate the work of the volunteers at Santa’s Workshop as they share what they do with Lisa Fernandez from Channel 9 on the Today Show.
