Helping Australian country kids

No distance
too far

When children in rural and remote areas have health and developmental problems, the right help can be a long way away. However being far from help, doesn’t mean they are far from hope. We help to assess, treat and support children and families going through growing pains.

OUR STORY

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

Donate

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

Fundraise

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

Volunteer

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!
