Watch the highlights from 2023 to get a feel for what to expect!







  1. Project #1: Ronald McDonald House Wagga

    Ronald McDonald House in Wagga provide fee free accommodation for families with sick or injured children and Mothers with high-risk pregnancy. The House offers more than a place to sleep, the House and Family Room are carefully designed to give families a home like environment that helps them feel more supported, less stressed and better able to cope and support their sick child. Our goal is to keep families close in their time of need and close to the care their child is receiving.

  2. Project #2: Rural Outreach Counselling

    Rural Outreach Counselling (ROC) is a locally based mental health charity that offers a range of supports in Wagga and in the neighbouring communities. They offer free suicide prevention training, both in face-to-face workshops and via Zoom sessions focussing on Prevention and Early Intervention versus Intervention and Crisis Reaction. Their fully qualified counsellors are able to travel to offer support and sessions to our clients outside of the normal clinical office environments, giving ROC the opportunity to bring mental health support to towns and communities that have limited, or sometimes no local services. Their free QPR suicide prevention workshops have been delivered to hundreds of participants, giving them the skills to be able to “Question” someone’s mental ill health, “Persuade” them to accept help and we offer the “Refer” network to then assist them on their journey to mental Good Health.

  3. Project #3: Big Brothers Big Sisters Australia

    Big Brothers Big Sisters Australia (BBBS) works to change the lives of disadvantaged youth through the early intervention and preventative approach of targeting vulnerable young people and supporting them through the provision of a positive adult role model. By matching young people with positive role models, our mentoring programs provide a safe and supportive space for our next generation to foster a sense of belonging and self-worth. Working closely with key stakeholders within our community, the program helps both young people and their mentors to build social connections and networks of support in their local community.
