SunnyKids Annual Report 2015
ANNUAL REPORT
2015
MESSAGE FROM THE BOARD
Chris Turner, CEO
In 2015, SunnyKids provided more than 10,000 nights of accommodation to
homeless families, provided a social and emotional safety net to thousands of
students through our partner schools and directly supported over 100 other local
at risk families. In 100% of these families, things improved measurably and more
than 75% identified significant improvement or complete resolution.
It is with a strong sense of organisational responsibility that we have embedded
a clear strategic vision for the coming years. So, in being an example of the
solutions that we want to deliver, we have focused on our own accountability
and responsibility to our clients, to our community and to our stakeholders and
supporters. This has included quarterly reviews against our strategic and
operational plans and revised board induction processes to ensure that the
SunnyKids organisation, its members and staff exceed sector expectations
regarding good governance.
Ultimately SunnyKids works with children, their families and communities to ensure vulnerable, neglected and abused children get the kind of lives they
deserve. We all know that life can deliver the unexpected – regardless of
circumstance or position – and that none of us know when we might need a
helping hand. We are dedicated to being that helping hand to as many families
as possible – even yours – if the need arises. COMPASSION
“a force that
compels one to
act subsequent to
deep seated
feelings”
“I left that first meeting with Chris Turner knowing
that SunnyKids was an organisation that had the
potential to make a huge impact in the lives of
children on the Coast and I knew without a doubt
I wanted to be involved. The growth of SunnyKids
since that meeting has been incredible and I am
grateful to be a part of it”.
Amanda Gavin,
Treasurer
MESSAGE FROM THE
BOARD
“The developmental curve that SunnyKids has
been on over the last year or so has been
substantial, it is a much more sophisticated business
than it was just two years ago, which will hold us in
good stead moving forward. Congratulations to
Chris and the team, thank you to board members, let’s keep challenging each other and keep the
momentum going” Brett Mills,
President
SunnyKids model is driven by the belief that
‘it is not the child’s problem to fix, nor is it the
families or the community’s problem singularly…
It is the child’s; family and community’s problem
together.’ Therefore, it requires a community
solution in which all people take responsibility
for their involvement.
SunnyKids is dedicated to creating a culture
and communities that provide access to targeted,
strategically planned and coordinated support
systems for child and adult victims. The SunnyKids
Virtual Village model ensures that the community
is engaged and resourced to provide the whole of
community responses required by children and
adults alike.
SunnyKids model connects to

SunnyKids Virtual Village
The ‘SunnyKids Virtual Village’ uses five key areas to identify and secure the support that at risk
children, young people and families need in order to be their best: Economic Stability, Success in
Education, Safe and Nurturing Parenting, Cultural Connectedness and Access to Good Health Care.
In 2015 SunnyKids directly supported over 100 families. These statistics relate only to the presenting
child, however the influence of support also extends to siblings and extended family members. On average there are 2.1 siblings for each child that we support, therefore the number of kids that have
been supported is over 300. There were a number of presenting issues in each of the key areas.
SunnyKids provide varied and holistic support including: referrals for financial and emergency
relief, counselling, parenting and mentoring courses, substance use, social and community housing
assistance, medical and physical support, immigration and legal advice referrals, mental health,
sexual assault and Kids programs. In 2015 we were able to support many children in these top
presenting areas.
The average
age of the kids
we helped was 10 years of
