Posted on 11 Jul, 2023
Families and parents in Alice Springs will have more opportunity to access vital support going forward with Alice Springs Town Council and Birth and Beyond entering into a partnership agreement.
Birth and Beyond is a community organisation that provide support, education and resources for pregnancy, birthing and support in Alice Springs. Council have endorsed a partnership with the organisation for $20,000, allowing them to grown their services moving forward.
“We know that becoming a parent can be one of the most stressful times in anyone’s life and it’s important that people have access to reliable support systems during this time,” Mayor Matt Paterson said.
“Council are extremely proud to help support Birth and Beyond and the incredible work they do in our community. I encourage anyone needing family support to get in touch with this special organisation.”
Birth and Beyond Committee Chair Antje Chalmers said the organisation are excited about the partnership, saying they cannot wait to help as many young families as possible.
“Birth and Beyond are extremely excited about this partnership with the Alice Springs Town Council,” she said.
“We are grateful for their support of our vision which is focused on supporting the families of Alice Springs. With this funding support we look forward to extending our services and providing even more exciting opportunities for the Alice Springs community.
“Birth and Beyond have a number of projects in the pipeline aimed at supporting the parenting community of Alice Springs. This funding from Alice Springs Town Council will feed straight into those projects and therefore the supports available to parents in Alice. There are exciting times ahead, so watch this space!”
