We are committed to creating opportunities for disadvantaged families, youth and the aged.
We invest in initiatives that improve quality of life and help others achieve their potential to meaningfully participate in the community. We achieve this by granting of funds to Australian community groups. Our focus areas include:
The Foundation will be giving priority to programs that are committed to providing the quality of life for individuals and their families with progressive neurological and physical diseases.
The Foundation's basic needs program, supports community groups that are assisting families that are struggling to be self-sufficient and support long-term priorities and find solutions that help families move out of poverty or avoid a crisis.
Disadvantaged children and youth
The Foundation supports education projects that help break the cycle of disadvantage and empower young Australians to reach their potential. Priority will be given to applications addressing:
- prevention and early intervention, and
- education, employment and training for young people.
Underpinning all these initiatives is mental health. All people, regardless of where they live or economic status should have access to quality mental health care. We have seen that impacts of mental health may have flow on effects with many experiencing poverty, homelessness, and unemployment as a result.
To make inroads in to these issues, we need to address this.
Integrated within our core programs is access to resources that focus on early intervention and prevention.
