The RACV Community Foundation is pleased to announce that KIDS Foundation is the recipient of the inaugural Capacity Building Grant. In June 2017 a $290,000 Capacity Building Grant was awarded to the KIDS Foundation.
The KIDS Foundation is a national leader in childhood injury prevention and injury recovery, established in 1993. As a successful past small grant recipient, KIDS Foundation was able to show a significant impact with its small grant in 2015. The measured outcome of that grant showed an increase in awareness of safety and mobility amongst children and their families.
The Capacity Building Grant will allow the KIDS Foundation to engage with 2,000 pre-school and early learning centres across the Victoria, increasing safety understanding and injury-reducing responsible practices. Approximately 100,000 Victorians will participate in the project with 2,000 class resource kits and 2,000 digital licences distributed throughout the State.
The RACV Community Foundation is looking forward to sharing the outcomes of this initiative with all our supporters.
