Edmund Rice Camps WA – Eddie on the Road Programme Facilitator

The Eddie on the Road Programme (EOTR) delivers Edmund Rice camp experiences to remote and regional Western Australia. With the generous support of Lotterywest, ERCKWA is in a position to increase the number of EOTR programmes in 2021 and 2022 and provide resources to establish/secure local business and community support for the purpose of funding the programme well into the future.

ERCKWA has establishing two project roles using the Lotterywest grant to help achieve the successful delivery of an expanded EOTR programme and secure regional and remote partnerships to provide the necessary cash and in kind support for the future of EOTR.

Both the EOTR Programme Development and Strategy Manager role and the EOTR Programme Facilitator roles are contracted positions that are funded through the Lotterywest Grant for a period of two years.

I am delighted to announce the appointment of Rebecca (Bec) Hicks as the Programme Facilitator for the EOTR Programme.

Bec brings a wealth of knowledge about Edmund Rice to the role having been a volunteer for many years. Bec has a Bachelor of Arts Degree from UWA and has recently completed a Masters in International Development also at UWA. Her skills as well as her passion for Edmund Rice Camps make her a great fit for this role and I am looking forward to working with Bec to deliver a successful and expanded EOTR programme into the future.

Initially the role will involve an in depth review of the EOTR Programme to date with recommendations to be made as to how best to proceed, especially following the disrupted 2020 season due to Covid 19. The review period will be followed by a planning phase and then a delivery component in 2021 with the engagement and involvement of Eddie Rice Leaders.

I am sure you will join me in congratulating Bec on her role and providing her with the support she needs along the way.
