Koala North West


Our Charity of The Year

We are delighted to announce Koala North West as our official charity partner for 2023.

As our official 2023 charity partner, we will help champion Koala North West’s mission to deliver both practical and emotional support for children and their families, and improve their wellbeing, reduce feelings of isolation and allow them to thrive within their local communities. Throughout the year, we will be hosting a number of fundraising initiatives to raise donations for the charity, while also offering unique experiences for the families in Koala North West’s care at the centre – from in-centre family events to volunteer work within the local community.

Who are Koala North West? 

Koala North West has been providing a range of services for families for 23 years in Wirral, expanding into Ellesmere Port in 2020 and Chester and other areas of Cheshire West in 2022.

Koala North West provides children, aged 0-11 years, and their families with tailored practical and emotional support that improves wellbeing, reduces isolation and supports both children and care-givers to thrive. One of the real strengths of our organisation is the diverse range of services and support programmes we offer to meet the individual needs of children and their families. 

We provide a range of services such as home visiting family support, groups and courses for parents,  parent infant mental health service, sleep support service, support for children with complex needs, and breastfeeding peer support service all with the aim to support families to meet one or more of the following outcomes:

  • Improved health and wellbeing (child and parent/carer)

  • Improved parenting (confidence, positive behaviours)

  • Improved family management (finances and home conditions)

  • Improved School Readiness (parents engage with children’s early learning, and children are ready to separate, communicate, listen, socialise, learn, be active and be independent

 

We are honoured to have been selected as McArthurGlen Designer Outlet Cheshire Oaks’ Charity Partner for 2023. As we continue to expand our services to support as many families in need as possible across the North West of England, the centre’s dedication to championing our cause will greatly contribute to our ability to reach those families who need our help the most.
