Rumpus Youth

Rumpus Student Services has two main focusses, Lunchtime Programs and Character Development Programs. Rumpus Student Services connects with students throughout the North West Coast by running different activities during School lunch breaks. These activities allow our team to develop connections and establish healthy relationships that can prove beneficial no matter what stage of life a young person finds themselves in. Our team also offer more specialized Character Development programs. Shine and Strength meet weekly in various school and allow our team to facilitate conversation with young people around topics such as resilience, self-worth, healthy relationships and respect.

Community Service Organisation Partnerships

We develop relationships and partnerships with Community Service Organisations who are making a difference in our community. Our partners include Mission Australia where we support them with Hygiene and Basic Care packages for families and participants. Chaplaincy support is also provided to Mission Australia Staff in both the Devonport and Burnie offices.

Care Packs & Christmas Hampers

The focus is to give families and individuals in our local community, who are going through a tough season a Care Pack or Christmas Hamper.  Our heart is to support, encourage and lavish a little on these people.  A Care Pack in a time of need can bring encouragement and joy in a hard situation.  A Christmas Food Hamper can enable a family to celebrate and enjoy time together around a Christmas meal.

Devonport Chaplaincy

Gateway Community Care financially supports Chaplaincy programs in our local schools. We provide student mentors who work one on one with children and young people. Visit www.devonportchaplaincy.org.au for more information. We also provide Mentors for the The Easy P’s Learner Driver Mentor program which helps students obtain their Provisional Driver’s License, where they would otherwise have no access to a suitable vehicle or their own supervisory driver.

Community Projects

A Community transformation project where we will bring blessing to a community service organisation with a makeover or renovation. We have recently had a team work with the community with a makeover of the SPACE School building.  It was great work as a team with other trades people to see this area transformed with a new coat of paint, new furniture and fresh realised work spaces.  This fresh new building has provided students with a wonderful place to meet and work on their school activities.  This environment helps students to feel valued and supported in their education.

CONNECTING FAMILIES

White Butterfly

The White Butterfly annual Remembrance Service is supporting, strengthening and encouraging individuals and families through the journey of losing a child before birth, stillborn, abortion and miscarriage, in a safe and caring environment. This service takes time to remember, to honour and to recognize the journey of loss.
