How to become a Better Buddies school

The Alannah & Madeline Foundation has been fortunate in obtaining support from NAB, trusts and foundations and other community partners to sponsor the Better Buddies Framework into schools across Australia. 

Schools can register their interest in receiving a Better Buddies Framework and may be successful in becoming a Better Buddies school at any time throughout the year.  However, as the Framework is specifically designed to support students' orientation and transition during their first year of schooling, the approach to implementing Better Buddies will vary depending on the time of year this occurs.  The Better Buddies Team is available to support schools in implementing the program throughout the year.

Schools will receive guidance to implement the Framework in slow and measured steps, working towards supporting the next intake of students transitioning to school.  The Better Buddies Team will provide ongoing information, newsletters and updates to keep you informed and to aid your preparation for Better Buddies.

To register to receive a sponsored Better Buddies Framework, complete the online application form.

Alternatively, schools can purchase the Better Buddies Kit.  Please contact a member of the Better Buddies Team.
