Meals on Wheels has had a place in the hearts and homes of Australians for more than 60 years. We deliver healthy meals to clients' homes to not only ensure their nutritional requirements are being met, but to provide regular social contact and a friendly check to see all is well. Every day a friendly smile, a chat about the weather, a nutritious meal and knowing someone will drop by to say hello, changes the lives of many Australians and it’s not just the clients who value this contact, ask any of the 15,000 Queensland volunteers and they will tell you reaching out and making a difference in somebody's day, makes their day.
Keeping families under the one roof and close to the Hospital. Families often have to travel far from home to receive the medical care their child needs. Our 18 Houses provide essential care and support for families, only steps away from the hospital.
Access Community Services Limited is one of Australia’s leaders in multicultural issues, with over 30 years of experience in the provision of settlement, employment, training, youth support services, housing and social enterprise opportunities for migrants, refugees and Australian born clients. Services are delivered right across Queensland with a particular focus on the South East, including Logan City, Ipswich City and the Gold Coast.
FareShare runs Australia's largest charity kitchen and cooks rescued food into free, nutritious meals for people doing it tough. Harnessing hundreds of local volunteers, FareShare's new Brisbane kitchen makes a meaningful difference to vulnerable Queenslanders by cooking 5,000 healthy meals a day. Those who have benefited from free meals to date include rough sleepers in Brisbane, flood-affected people in Townsville, and women fleeing domestic violence. Via our biscuit campaign, you can ensure that these fellow Queenslanders will be delivered a treat next to their nutritious meal, powered by the biscuits that you donate!
Drought Angels is the little charity with big hearts helping Aussie farmers throughout the country who are facing drought and other challenges on the land. Drought Angels offers farmers direct and personal contact, discreet assistance, and gratitude for what they do. Funded and powered by the generosity of everyday Australians—individuals, corporates and grants—Drought Angels reach out to families, host local events and support communities. Through your donations via our biscuits campaign, you can gift these farmers and their families a treat to sweeten their day in times of difficulty.
