Congratulations to the Gatehouse Centre for winning the Minister’s Awards for Innovation in Protecting Children category for the 2018 Victorian Protecting Children Awards on Monday night.
Gatehouse was nominated on three recently introduced programs: Animal assisted therapy, the Child Family Trauma System Intervention – a therapy for trauma exposure – and Our Space, a resource for young people experiencing vulnerability.
Gatehouse Manager Karen Hogan said she is very proud of her team for having their hard work acknowledged in a state setting.
“Our gatehouse staff are passionate about helping children and families manage their trauma and the impact of their abuse. We will always be looking at ways we can do more for our patients and implement new programs to continually assist in their treatment,” Ms Hogan said.
