HIPPY: Home Interaction Programme for Parents and Youngsters

This proven life-changing programme is designed to support parents who may not feel comfortable in their own abilities to support their children’s education – breaking the cycle of lack of education, and making generational change. It prepares children aged three to five for the transition to school, while giving parents the skills and confidence to engage in their children’s learning and go on to further education and employment. In 2018 the Wright Family Foundation committed to funding the programme by $230,000 a year for at least three years.
