What is The Venny?
At The Venny, kids can crawl through tunnels, play with animals, walk on stilts, hide in castles in the air, jump on trampolines, dig the veggie patch, cook a nutritious meal, climb trees and sing at the tops of their voices.
It’s fun, it’s creative, it’s messy and it’s a little bit chaotic, but it’s exactly what childhood should be.
In close proximity to the Kensington high-rise public housing estate, it
provides a supervised ‘backyard’ and safe haven for local 5-15 year olds.
It delivers a diverse range of early intervention and prevention programs that build children’s resilience. With this support, children are able to maintain their engagement in education, form stable relationships and develop positive community connections.
