About Cobaw Community Health
Cobaw Community Health Services Ltd was established in 1986, and is a not-for-profit with the mission of providing excellence in accessible services to enable people in Victoria to live healthy, active lives. Cobaw provides a comprehensive range of free and low-cost services to over 5,000 people each year in early childhood, youth, families, adults, aged and disability.
Cobaw Community Health has embraced community health and wellbeing issues, proved to have been a driving force locally for service innovation and demonstrated a clear commitment to Social and Emotional Learning. We were impressed with their passion and commitment and are looking forward to working with their team to deliver their first programs to eight children during Term 3.
How The Best of Friends® program will be implemented at Cobaw Community Health Services Ltd
The first 10-week group of The Best of Friends® program, along with the first 8-week group for the BaseCamp® program will take place in Term 3 2020 and will be closely supported by our team of facilitators. Each participant receives a copy of the exclusive workbook developed by Quirky Kid, while facilitators and parents have access to an extensive range of information, manuals and regular supervision as required.
To ensure adequate evaluation, each individual child and group complete pre- and post- psychometric testing of their social and emotional skills to measure the outcome of the intervention. Evaluation and monitoring is an important component of The Best of Friends® programs.
We look forward to working closely with Cobaw Community Health Services Ltd!
