Help change the life trajectory of country kids like Jack

Important service update: in response to NSW Health’s stay at home orders for Greater Sydney, our Centre for Country Kids and Drummond House facilities in Manly are temporarily closed.


All face-to-face services, accommodation bookings, events and external meetings will therefore be suspended until further notice. The health and safety of our clients, their families, and our team remains our top priority. Clients and customers impacted will be contacted by one of our team. We will provide further advice as the situation progresses.  In the meantime, please call us on 02 8966 8500 if you have any queries.


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!
