October 2020


Keeping our clients and team safe is a high priority at Muddy Puddles. This has been reflected by our response to the COVID pandemic. We have adjusted our practices so that we can still provide our clients with the support they need, while managing the risk of community transmission of the virus. We are continuing to follow Government health advice and communicate regularly with our clients about any changes we make to the way we deliver services.

As we get ready to head into the next school holidays, our Creative Arts Therapy team are busy preparing to deliver the Stormbirds program at Muddy Puddles. This free program aims to support young people to understand and manage the changes they may experience as a result of natural disaster. You can read more about the program below and visit our website to register. 

We are excited that our support team has grown over the recent months. Our skilled Support Assistants are available to support our clients with therapy, daily living, community access and participation and employment skills. If you would like to discuss a program of support please get in touch with your Muddy Puddles key contact.


Stormbirds: Growing through natural disaster

The Stormbirds program is a safe place for young people to practice new ways of thinking and responding to the change and loss that has occurred in their lives as a result of a natural disaster. The program is facilitated by the Muddy Puddles Creative Arts Therapies team and will include music, art and drama activities. The final session includes a BBQ celebration that parents and carers are encouraged to attend.
