I would like to congratulate Rowena Sebastian for the fantastic new look. I am sure Rowena would welcome your feedback and how AWCH can further improve the content and style of the newsletter, please let her know what you think and send your comments to rowena@awch.com.au .

AWCH Library finds a home

AWCH is delighted to announce that the AWCH Library is re-locating to new premises at The Children's Hospital at Westmead in Sydney. The AWCH Library finds its new home within the Medical Library which is located in the Education Centre, Main building, Level 3. AWCH Library however will be 'business as usual' both during and after the re-location and will continue to process enquiries without you having to visit the library on site. So please give us a bell if you have need for any information or resources relating to the needs of children, young people and their families in healthcare.

Accommodation for National Office

With a new home found for the AWCH Library, that just leaves a gap in accommodation for the National Office, which is currently located at the homes of national office staff at Woolooware and Greystanes in Sydney. If you know of any rent free accommodation that may be available, or a kind sponsor, I would appreciate a call.

AWCH as a new entity

AWCH has now been incorporated nationally through ASIC and has a new board of directors. One of the important new board members is Harry Whelan, representing young people. Harry comes to the AWCH board with a wealth of experience as a youth representative and is already hot on our heels about more youth participation and youth friendly promotional material.

Overseeing the implementation of the AWCH Strategic plan will be the major focus of the board.
