Invitations sent to....


May we keep a rough list of who we have sent invites to (I don’t think it would matter so much if we doubled up on a couple of orgs by accident) but it would be good for us to know who each other has reached.

Feel free to invite people/orgs other than those you have already put your name to. I have just gone through my address book and found a few extras that I had forgotten.

If you get a good response from an org, promising to share with their database, could you please record it here, too.

THANKS :slight_smile: Nat

  • Childwise – agreed to disseminate

****And, submitted to Ross House to have them include in their weekly e-bulletin ---- if either of you are on any community sector mailing lists that sends out a regular e-bulletin/digest or similar might you please also approach them about including our event? Many thanks.


In our meeting we agreed to contact Anglicare and the Salvos…

There are a lot of other big community services orgs who work with families.

Juliet, do you know if the key players (eg. UnitingCare, Brotherhood, MelbCityMission, Mackillop etc etc) are likely to already be on any of the mailing lists that you are asking to promote the event (e.g OSCC, SECASA) or do we need to contact these orgs individually?

Many thanks!

If we do, I’ve started a bit of list (I couldn’t find a comprehensive one, it won’t be complete but it’s a start). I’ve looked up the web addresses but have not made contact, yet.
