Tiny Sparks WA are proud to work alongside and collaborate with a number of organisations.
In alphabetical order.
Dial An Elf is the flagship project of Communified Inc, conceived by childhood cancer activist Jess Hayes as part of a university project in 2011, and the reason Communified (Inc) was founded in 2014.
Dial An Elf is an online micro-volunteering portal designed to connect families with volunteers in their area. There is no regular commitment required, and volunteers can choose what they do and when. Even just 5 minutes to take out bins or feed a family pet can make a world of difference when a child is hospitalised, giving parents the freedom to remain with their child rather than having to go home to attend to these chores.
The Fathering Project aims to improve child development outcomes by inspiring and equipping fathers and father figures to engage positively with their kids.
We know that an effective father has a profound impact on the kids, thus it is of great importance to establish Fathers and Father Figures that interact with their children as effective as possible. We seek to make better dads for the benefit of the children.
