About Elegrow

We strive for a world of thriving, sustainable communities where children and care professionals grow, connect with confidence, laugh out loud, experience fully and have access to learning and resources in their context. 


  • We strive for a world where education that fosters resilience is accessible to all children and those who care for others. 
  • We strive for a world where children are self-assured, present and resilient. 
  • We strive for a world where care professionals experience fully and sustainably.

Our priority is developing thriving, resilient, connected communities 

To reduce and risk manage experiences of stress, compassion fatigue and trauma in partnership with care professionals.  Enlivening strengths, curiosity and new capability that fosters resilience to experience fully and sustainably.

 Stress, compassion fatigue and trauma can have a significant negative affect on experiences, interactions, relationships, how we perceive, view, experience and make meaning of the world around us.  It can have a substantial flow on effect to those you love, friends’ colleagues and clients. Stress and trauma without support or resources, can limit social engagement, learning, careers, life experiences and well being.

 Our commitment to developing care professionals and children comes from a deep gratitude, a desire to give back, and an understanding that prolonged stress and exposure to trauma can have substantial negative effects on experiences and life outcomes.

 We provide contextualised programs informed by evidence, specifically for care professionals and children, resources, consulting and counselling services.


Our communities thrive, grow, laugh out loud, experience fully and sustainably.

Passionate about developing thriving communities and an advocate for leveraging the evidence to solve industry problems, Michelle Black founder of Elegrow, developed an evidence based combined intervention/professional development program to combat compassion fatigue among care professionals and is the author of Ellie and the Sunflowers.
