Gidget Foundation Australia Tresillian Scholarship
Since 2008, Gidget Foundation Australia has funded an annual scholarship for a Tresillian nurse to complete a Mental Health Course to complement the skills they already have in child and family health care.
"What an amazing initiative this has been, and the skills these nurses have gained have undoubtedly enabled many families to receive quality care in the area of mental health. We are extremely grateful to the Gidget Foundation for their foresight in providing Tresillian with what is a lasting legacy." Robert Mills, CEO Tresilian
