Would you like to refer a child to Edmund Rice Camps WA?
Here’s everything you need to know about referring a child to us!
All children at ERCWA are referred annually by a referral agent. The referral agent in this case is a third party professional in a position of counselling, teaching or psychology. A person who knows the child well enough to confirm that they meet the eligibility criteria for this program. The referral agent must complete the required forms and pay a fee of $125 per child (fee valid for 2019); which is valid for the year. The referral is eligible to be renewed each year until the child turns 16; with the completion of the required forms and payment. The annual payment made by the agent will allow the child to attend all programs suitable for their age group at no cost to the family. A child can change referral agents from year to year if needed.
Referrals will be open for children who are born in the years 2003-2011 from 7 September to 5 October 2018 for the following year (2019). Eligibility criteria (available via the link at the top of the page) needs to be satisfied in order to refer a child to ERCWA.
Referral agents must follow the following process to submit a referral:
Contact Meghan Huitema, Community Engagement Manager via
firstname.lastname@example.org or 0433 528 042 (part time working hours)
Fill in and return the Referral Form (available on the website or via the Manager)
Receive an invoice and make the referral payment of $125 per child (valid for 2019)
The child’s referral is processed and the parent or carer is sent a welcome pack via email
The contact must confirm the child's involvement in specific programs by the deadline.
Please be aware that we have a one-to-one volunteer to child policy on camps. Places are limited based on a number of factors including the amount of volunteers available for the activity; the amount of children who express interest; and the resources made available to each activity. ALL PROGRAMS ARE SUBJECT TO FUNDING.
We take child safety very seriously: our approach won the 2014 Constable Care Child Safety Award in the WA Child Safety Education and Care category.
