About Us: OUR AWARDS
In August 2016, PANDSI was delighted to be presented with the ACTCOSS Little Feet, Big Footprint Award at the Community Sector Award. It was lovely to be recognised by our peers for the dedicated work we put in to helping mums and dads when they need it most.
The following is an extract from the presentation night ....
The Little Feet, Big Footprint Award was presented by ACTCOSS President Camilla Rowland.
This award recognises a small organisation that is having a big impact on our community.
The recipient of this award is PANDSI –The ACT Post and Ante Natal Depression Support and Information Inc.
PANDSI is a little organisation making a big impact on the perinatal mental health of women and their families in the ACT. They offer an essential service which offers targeted, holistic and responsive support to women and their families experiencing a significant life transition. Their expert support services are accessible, affordable, compassionate and contemporary.
PANDSI was chosen because their impact on the community is clearly demonstrated and multi-generational. Their practice approach is person-centred, wrap-around and crucial to our community. Activities like the recent PANDSI Bake Off are highly effective in bringing attention to an important issue in our community at the same time that they generate funds for this small organisation to continue to broaden its impact through services and support groups.
