Connected Beginnings National Gathering

Connected Beginnings National Gathering

Kylie Burgess, Burnie Works Shared Learning Coordinator, joined the team from Lutruwita Connected Beginnings at the National Gathering in Brisbane recently.

The Tasmanian Aboriginal Council delivers the Connected Beginnings program in three sites across Tasmania. Burnie Works partners with the pataway Connected Beginnings team to ensure that Aboriginal children living in the area, aged 0-5, get the very best start to life and are ready for school, and to create longstanding social change within the community to help children achieve and thrive.

The National Gathering was the first opportunity since COVID for 30 communities across Australia who are part of the program to learn what is working well and talk about the challenges of working across silos so that Aboriginal families are connected into the health and early learning systems.

The Lutruwita team presented to a packed room, sharing the impact of their initiatives across Bridgewater, Burnie, Northern Suburbs of Launceston, and George Town.

Kylie and the Connected Beginnings team data guru Chris T, talked about the new ways we have been working with Government to share data with community. The audience was interested in hearing more about the hugely successful Kipli Kani gatherings.
