Child Australia began its work on the Bagot Community in August 2011 after successfully tendering for the Out of School Hours Service (OSHS) program.

Since 2011 we have also secured funding to deliver PaCE [Parent and Community Engagements. programs in 2013,2014 and 2015.

Child Australia was successful with IAS [Indigenous Advancement Strategy] funding and we are now funded to continue to deliver programs on the Bagot Community For the Bagot Community until 2018.

Our work on Bagot Community strives to always deliver Current, Culturally sensitive and appropriate services. We do this by maintaining our strong presence and engagement with the community.

We believe the only way that we can be successful in this role on Bagot is to be one with the community and to drive change that the community has informed and owns rather than change for change sake.

In 2013 and 2014 the Child Australia Out of School Hours Service (OSHS) based at Bagot Community was the host organisation for the Walking Neighbourhood Project as part of the Bagot Festival, which featured as part of the Darwin International Arts Festival.

Kieren’s relationship with the staff was developed during this time as she was the producer for the Bagot Festival in 2013 and 2014.
