Canossaville Children and Community Services
Description of Organization
Canossaville Children and Community Services (Canossaville) is a Catholic social service agency, serving and impacting the lives of children and their families across their preschool and primary years, regardless of race, language, or religion. We specialise in supporting children with hearing loss and other disabilities, and support the holistic development of the children and their families in our care.
The sectors under Canossaville include:
Canossaville Preschool – A mainstream preschool specialising in supporting children with hearing loss
Canossaville Student Care – An integrated student care centre serving the needs of students from The Canossian Village
Canossian Child Development Unit – A multidisciplinary team of professionals supporting the children and their families in The Canossian Village across the areas of learning, behavioural, and psychosocial needs.
Canossian EIPIC (Early Intervention Programme for Infants and Children) – A one-stop support for children aged 6 years and below with hearing loss
Intended use of funds through the YFC 2022 programme
Funds raised from the YFC projects will go towards supporting the running of our core programmes and services for children and their families. This includes but are not limited to, funding the purchase of resources and equipment essential to the functioning of our programmes and services dedicated for children with hearing loss and multiple disabilities and their families under our care.
Engaging and involving the YFC participants
All YFC groups selected by Canossaville are required to attend a briefing session online by Canossaville where we will share about what we do at Canosssaville. We believe that the students should understand our cause and serve as positive advocates to their peers throughout the course of the YFC project and beyond.
Where possible or permissible under current COVID-19 guidelines, we may support and engage the teams on possible volunteering opportunities if available.
