Our Charitable Purposes

We are a registered charity with ACNC, an Association under the Associations Act, and a public benevolent institution. That means that we are a charity whose main purpose is to relieve poverty or distress (such as unemployment, sickness, disability, destitution, suffering, misfortune or helplessness) of the people in need in our Wide Bay region. Our Charitable Objects drive the direction our assistance takes. So you can see from those listed below, one of the ways that we work to relief distress of poverty of people in need, is to help them get into jobs through skills building, job experience through volunteer placements, volunteering to gain job skills, volunteering to gain employment and then encourage employers to take those volunteers on in the workplace. We also look at changing our community to prevent the conditions that put people in need. For example, we look to implementing the UN Sustainable Development goals at a local level, encouraging every organisation to do the same, and to ensure that that their employment processes follow the EEO, antidiscrimination and UN Sustainable Goal number 5 (Gender Equality) in particular. Our purpose is simple.... we focus on people in need in the Wide Bay.


To promote awareness of and value in the volunteering experience by encouraging the community to participate.
To enable volunteers to develop necessary skills that may lead to employment, and to encourage employers to hire those with volunteering experience.
To develop and maintain a system to provide volunteers with relevent skills to organisations whereby contributing to the relief of poverty, sickness and other misfortune.
To promote the well being of individuals, groups and communities who are disadvantaged and vulnerable either socially, physcially, intellectually or emotionally by inclusion in volunteering.
To promote support and assist any social welfare program designed to contribute to the alleviation of poverty, sickness or other misfortune, including those undertaken by Statutory Authorities, Voluntary Welfare Organisations and other community groups.




Donations to other Organisations

We dont just help our member organisations. We help other organisations that need help with events, donations, volunteers or teams of volunteers to help them address a specific issue.

We Donate our time, resources, training and assistance thousands of times a year.

People before profit.
