At a national business level, Financial Services Partners is proud to have a long association with Merry Makers Australia.
Merry Makers Australia is unique
There is nothing like them anywhere in the world. They are a diverse group of people, ranging in age from six to fifty-six, most of whom have an intellectual or physical disability, but all of whom refuse to be defeated by the enormous challenges life has dealt them.
The Merry Makers dance
Anyone who has seen them perform can attest to the fact that they have an amazing ability to lift spirits and put a smile on their audience’s faces.
But that’s not all they do
What the Merry Makers do best is perform miracles. Countless times parents bring their son or daughter along to class having previously been given little hope for their personal development. And whilst it doesn’t happen overnight, the regular structure of the rehearsal program provides a wonderful opportunity for developing the social skills of these special individuals. In a suburban Sydney hall every Saturday, both parent and the child can blossom in an atmosphere of love, acceptance and support. To the parents, siblings and friends, the gradual and consistent progress of the ‘Merries’ is often miraculous!
Merry Makers Australia is a registered charity run entirely by dedicated volunteers. For more information or to make a donation, visit their website at www.merrymakers.com.au or call them on 1300 668 276.
