These Are the Heroes with the Passion to Transform Their Communities
How Can You Help
Volunteer to meet a specific need. We have opportunities for young people who are interested in working with disability to do voluntary work as well as relevant health professionals.
Make a financial contribution or help sponsor a specific thing, be it some equipment or an event like the Christmas Party. We have had many donations of knitted goods which are great for our kiddies who struggle to thermoregulate.
Help Make Things
There is a huge amount of work involved in our outreach to the Care Centres. We have lots of cutting out, pasting, drawing and painting work to be done
Join work parties
Please join our work parties which happen every now and then. These have been varied from sanding and repainting equipment to making equipment to gardening. We appreciate all the help we can get!
