Donate to our CEO’s Urgent Appeal today

Your tax time donation will help country kids like Lenny overcome the effects of traumatic events like bushfires and floods.


Country children and families now face the trauma inflicted by yet another natural disaster. Because of this, the need for developmental and mental health services for children in regions affected by floods will only deepen and broaden in the coming months.

In anticipation of this increased need, we’re asking for your help to raise $250,000 by 30 June. This will provide continued and additional support to our client families affected by floods, disasters and other traumatic events.


Health assessment

Your journey with us begins with a comprehensive screening and assessment in-community, at Manly or via videolink.

Health intervention

Children can access a care plan, therapy and ongoing support and intervention where needed. We offer support in Manly or via videolink through our Telecare programs.

Family support

We offer ongoing therapy, parenting support, care coordination, and capacity building for families and schools via videolink as well as onsite in Manly.

Three ways you can help


Every dollar goes to to support country children. We’re funded by a combination of your donations, investments, government grants and corporate partnerships. Anything you give is enormously appreciated. Donations over $2 are tax deductible.  

Get involved


Sausage sizzles, fun runs, marathon bike rides – anyone can help out with a little imagination and inspiration. Find out how you can get involved.

Get involved


Without volunteers, we couldn’t function. Many volunteers are long-term regulars, others offer their skills for a specific event. Even if you only have a few hours to spare, we’d love to have you!
