Welcome to our May Newsletter!

We have some BIG news below!

Also, a chance to have a say about your experience with My Choice Matters AND our huge calendar for June!

Remember to contact us on 1800 144 653 or [email protected] if you have any questions!

 

WE HAVE BEEN REFUNDED!

We are super excited to announce that we have been funded to continue to work in the community for another two years! Stay tuned to hear more about our plans over the next few months.

This also means that we will be changing a little bit so we wanted to reflect on who we were and where we are going through Our Story Matters. It’s a collection of everything we have achieved over the past few years.

We used the word ‘Our’ because this story is everybody’s. The success of My Choice Matters comes from all who have been involved and that is why we wanted to share it with you. We hope when you scroll through the pages you feel just as much a part of this as we feel you are.

Thanks for being part of My Choice Matters, we couldn’t have done it without you.

From the whole MCM Team
