Out-of-home care refers to the care of children and young people who are unable to live with their birth families and are placed in short or long term care to ensure the child’s safety.

Destiny Rescue is an international Christian based non-profit organisation dedicated to rescuing children from human trafficking and sexual exploitation. Our vision is to rescue the sexually exploited and enslaved, restore the abused, protect the vulnerable, empower the poor and be a voice for those who can’t speak up for themselves.

And, we’ll continue to expand to help reach even more children in the days ahead!

With that said, we’re determined to set captives free worldwide. As long as children are being sold into the sex-trade, and poverty that drives at-risk children into prostitution exists, Destiny Rescue will be fully committed to fighting for their freedom, restoration and offering them a chance to dream again.

Australia for UNHCR raises funds to support the work of the UN Refugee Agency (UNHCR) in Australia. Our purpose is to provide life-changing humanitarian support to refugees and other displaced and stateless people who come under the care and protection of the UN Refugee Agency.
Early in 2015, an article by Mia Freedman published on Mamamia caught our attention. We were shocked to learn that in Australia many homeless women and women in domestic violence shelters had to face unthinkable indignities during their monthly period. For these vulnerable and at risk women, each month brought a shameful and traumatic experience, suffering indignities such as having to clean themselves in public toilets and use paper towels or newspaper to create makeshift sanitary pads. Reading it from the comfort of our homes, with the knowledge that many Australian women couldn’t take hygiene for granted during menstruation, we knew we couldn’t allow it to continue.
We believe that sanitary items should be a right NOT a privilege.
In April and August we hold our collections for sanitary items, In November we hold our #itsinthebag campaign.Collection points around Australia help us in our mission to ensure every woman has dignity when dealing with her monthly period.

HR4A is a charitable law firm that provides some of the most senior, dedicated and passionate legal minds in Australia, free of charge, to people being held in indefinite and long-term detention. HR4A seeks liberty for all, regardless of race, colour, religion or economic background. Most human rights organisations focus on those asylum seekers on Manus or Nauru. There are few, if any (apart from HR4A), which dedicate resources for onshore detainees.
We are driven by empathy. Operating pro-bono, many of our activities rely completely on volunteer support as well as donations from individuals and organisations who share the same passion for freedom.
HR4A takes on the “too hard” or “impossible” cases, which have often exhausted traditional legal approaches. HR4A actively looks for aspects of cases that have not been pursued fully or can be challenged in an alternative fashion.
We challenge the current narrative around people seeking asylum through the success of our cases, submissions to human rights organisations and media engagement. We push the system to ensure the basic human rights of people in detention are recognized and respected.
We believe that the current system of immigration detention needs to be brought to the attention of the Australian public along with the UN and other international human rights bodies, through public discourse and media focus. To advance our cause, we are training the next generation of human rights lawyers through our internship program.

We make a difference by:
An independently assessed report by PwC states that for every $1 spent on restoring sight, the economic benefit is four-fold.
Workplace giving donations can be used to support our international programs in places such as Kenya where every dollar invested will have a $3.56 economic benefit.
Meals on Wheels has had a place in the hearts and homes of Australians for now 60 years.

Save the Children is one of Australia's largest aid and development agencies dedicated to helping children. We work hard to protect children from harm and help them access quality education and health services.
With more than 90 years working with children, we are at the forefront of saving children's lives when disasters strike and create lasting change for children and their families through our long-term development programs. Save the Children Australia is a member of Save the Children International, a global network of child-focused organisations supporting children in more than 124 countries.
In 2015, Save the Children Australia supported 160 projects in 31 countries around the world, reaching millions of people. Together with our donors and supporters, we are helping to make a positive change for millions of people who need it most.
CARE Australia is a leading international aid organisation that works around the globe to save lives and defeat poverty. We know we cannot overcome poverty until all people have equal rights and opportunities.
We put women and girls at the heart of our work. Their access to equal opportunities represents a powerful and effective opportunity to end extreme poverty. When one woman escapes poverty, she will bring four others with her.
We share with our supporters the desire for everyone to have a fair chance in life, an equal opportunity. Your donation can help end extreme poverty and give people the means to build a better future for themselves.
Your donation will help save lives. It will fight poverty and create a more equal world for everyone. It could send a girl to school, help a woman start a small business, help families recover when emergency strikes or help install village water systems.
CARE Australia's impact last year:
We assisted over 2.1 million people across 28 countries
We responded to 13 emergencies across 19 countries
968,000 people received humanitarian assistance
85 cents in every $1 spent went to our programs
94% of our staff are local to the country they work in
.... helping bring basic healthcare to more than 1000 people in 13 remote and disadvantaged communities in Sierra Leone, a country with one of the lowest life expectancies and highest maternal and child mortality rates in the world.
Some of the world's most treatable diseases, malaria, diarrhoeal diseases and respiratory infections, are the most common causes of illness and death, particularly for children and pregnant or breastfeeding women. Very basic health services that can treat these conditions alone will save lives, yet no government or NGO services have previously reached these communities.
Set4Life Australia members have a personal connection with the village of Yiben and their local champion, Minkailu Bantama (Mallam). Already, with Mallam's management and guidance, and support from our members, this community has built a primary school that also services the surrounding villages.
Now, as a registered charity, Set4Life Aust is funding a health facility that will enable access to basic services under the national health system. A government standard building has been constructed, again through the efforts of Mallam, a qualified building contractor and almost every member of the community. Toilets, rainwater storage and solar power will complete the first stage of their Community Health Centre - an outpatient clinic that will prioritise maternal and child health. Future plans include extensions to the building and services for inpatients (Stage 2) and a birthing unit (Stage 3).
Set4Life Aust works directly with Mallam and local decision-makers to respond to the local needs. Our members and supporters volunteer their time and efforts and we have no overheads. Every donated dollar goes directly to our projects which are community owned and driven.
We are seeking dedicated sponsors and regular contributors to help us complete the Health Centre and provide ongoing support for health-related development initiated by the community. Donations of $2 or more are tax deductible in Australia and even a small amount goes a long way.
PHOR is a not profit incorporated organisation. It aims to address the health issues of refugees. It has a number of programs including nutrition and physical activities holiday school programs for children
Our vision is to connect generous everyday Australians with people who have faced extreme adversity; so that they may create a safe warm home from which they can rebuild their lives and have a brighter future.
Our mission is to provide high quality donations of essential household items to people who are seeking asylum, fleeing domestic violence, youth at risk and those transitioning from foster care. We know that if you can sleep tight and eat right then anything seems possible. Delivering essentials (preloved beds, fridges, washing machines, sofas, chests of drawers, tables and microwaves) takes an empty rental and makes it 'my new home'.) While other agencies assist with clothes, food, toys and manchester, we concentrate on the big ticket, heavy items. We are different because we are fast - by working through caseworkers and advocates, we bypass lengthy assessment delays and preserve dignity. The reduction in unnecessary landfill is immense.
So when you hear of someone renovating, downsizing, moving back to their home country, redecorating, or helping their loved ones into aged care, see it as a beautiful opportunity for a win-win situation - a new beginning for someone in dire need, and a streamlined process for the kind donor. On the corporate side, office and hotel refurbishments, aged care facilities and construction companies are great referrals for us for larger-scale donations of durable high quality goods. Oh and it's incredibly good for the environment too with impressive reductions in landfill and less new items required!
To donate your lovely items, please log your offer at https://www.generousandgrateful.com.au/i-am-generous with a photo and basic info and a lovely volunteer will help coordinate the details, nice and easy.

Australian Social Investment Trust (ASIT) was established with a mission to enable and amplify social innovation, Collective Impact and social investment initiatives that are designed to create sustainable positive social impact for communities.ASIT’s broad charitable purpose aligns with the relief of poverty and improved well-being of individuals, families and communities.ASIT’s purpose is underpinned by its place-based community ‘Collective Impact’ model in Bellambi NSW, as a platform for the engagement and mobilisation of communities, businesses, NGOs, philanthropy and government in social and economic change.
BE AN ELF LTD is established to be a not for profit, whose purpose is to relieve poverty and build equal opportunity for children in Australia. We are non-denominational and assist children of all races, colours, sexes and creeds, with a special emphasis on poorer children, from significantly disadvantaged minorities, for example; Aboriginal or Torres Strait Islander children.
EVERY CHILD'S LIFE IS PRECIOUSBe an Elf Ltd was formed in in January 2018, but the Be An Elf Christmas Appeal has actually been operating for 11 years, in one form or other. Originally a group of concerned members of M.A.D (Mothers Against Drugs INC), just wanted to help hungry local children. Every time they went shopping, they would put a few extra items in the trolley, to be later distributed to children in need. From these humble beginnings, the giving program grew from helping a few, to helping hundreds and potentially thousands of deprived children, through the annual 'Be An Elf Xmas Appeal’.
'The Be an Elf Xmas Appeal' has been very successful. In 2016 we received national coverage in News Corp publications and The Daily Mail, as well as Quest newspapers for the first time. We get children and teens to write a wish list letter to Santa, which is then filled by generous donors. We are proud to say that have been able to make many children happy through the Appeal . Some of the letters we receive are heart breaking. They ask for towels, sheets, school shoes and lunchboxes for Christmas. We deliver to houses with no furniture and often find that the young people are living in very insecure situations. They may be couch surfing, living in cars or in crowded housing commission homes of 2-3 families, if in fact they are not homeless.
'The Be An Elf Xmas Appeal' is our most important community outreach campaign, but not our only one. The 'Sleepy Elves Appeal', where we help disadvantaged children with Manchester items is steadily growing. The group now known as Be An Elf Ltd has a long history. We have actually been operating under our former name M.A.D, since 1989, helping disadvantaged children, teens and their families in the Logan/Beenleigh regions and throughout South East Qld. Our name has changed and we have also evolved in our services role, over that period. Never the less, we have consistently helped literally 100’s of local children and their families to overcome problems relating to poverty, domestic violence, substance abuse, gambling, homelessness and criminality issues.
We have taken children and teens, who had no hope, no educational opportunities and even no food and shelter off the street and seen them go on to lead valuable and contributing lives. We will often be the last recourse when a child has nowhere else to turn.
Some of the kids we see just need a push, a kind word, someone to talk to, some food and decent clothing. Our volunteers tell us they have heard children we help say years later, “You know, that was the one thing that turned it around for me.” A simple act of generosity can have profound life changing results.
In our current work, Be An Elf Ltd focuses on 0-18 year olds', who are most in need of:• Emotional and psychological support• Physical safety and housing• Items that meet their basic living and schooling needsThese young people include those who are:• facing or at risk of sexual exploitation or experiencing domestic abuse• at risk of running away from home or care• seeking accommodation. They may be homeless, living in a car, couch surfing or sleeping rough.• living with a disability or caring for someone in their family with a disability, illness or substance abuse• living in care• offending or in the youth justice system• having mental and emotional health concernsWe also assist the families of disadvantaged children.
PROJECT FUTURES is about connecting people to the issue of human trafficking, slavery and exploitation by creating meaningful experiences that raise funds, educate and empower our generation to take action.
There are 45.8 million people enslaved in our world today, over half are women and 1 in 3 are children.
Women and children are being sold, trafficked, deceived, coerced or forced into sexual servitude, a marriage they do not want, worked to exhaustion as domestic slaves or labouring to service a debt they can never realistically pay off.

Who We Are
Children First Foundation (CFF) is an Australian based charity. We facilitate life-changing, sometimes life-saving, surgery in Australia for disadvantaged children from developing countries.These children are unable to access the medical care that they need, as the complex, and often multiple surgical procedures required, are not possible in their own countries. CFF has enabled over 350 children, from 32 countries to receive the care and treatment they need.
Miracle sMile Program
CFF assists children with a wide range of congenital conditions or acquired injuries. Each case referred to us is carefully assessed to ensure that the condition is operable, and that suitable treatment isn’t available in their own country. Most of the children we assist are suffering from conditions that in Australia would have been treated immediately at birth or diagnosis, dealt with correctly at the time of injury or, due to better living conditions, simply never encountered at all. The inequalities in our world are never clearer than when hearing the stories of the children who pass through our doors.
Pre and post-surgery the children are cared for at our Miracle sMiles Retreat. The Retreat is supervised 24/7 by a team of volunteers and skilled staff, including nurses. Volunteer teachers provide educational activities to support the children’s learning during their stay. A range of physiotherapists and other allied health specialists donate their time to ensure that rehabilitation and recovery programs are carefully followed to maximise outcomes from the surgery. This unique model of community-based care provides a home-away-from-home for the children as they prepare for, and recover from, life-changing surgery.
Following surgery and rehabilitation, the children return to their homes and families healthier, happier and with renewed hope for their futures.
The direct outcomes of the Miracle sMiles Program range from saving a child’s life to increasing mobility and other physical functionality, removing disfigurements and reducing pain.
These surgical interventions also have a much broader impact on our children and their families than simply improving their health. They often remove some of the barriers faced in achieving long term economic independence such as access to education, work and social acceptance. The impacts are often much more wide reaching than the individual. For example, increasing a child’s independence may allow a mother to return to work, resulting in extra funds for the family ensuring that siblings can attend school. The support ripples out to improve the lives of the families and wider community of the children we assist.
Why support us
Any funding that we receive will ultimately allow more young people to access to the life-changing surgery they need.Despite incredible support from the medical sector there are many expenses that we still need to source funding for. Even where a child surgical care is sourced completely pro-bono, we still need to cover costs such as international and domestic travel expenses, food and supplies for children and carers, rehab and pre/post-surgical costs such as blood tests and x-rays etc.
It costs us approximately $81 per child, per day to run our program, as CFF is not eligible to receive government funding, we rely on the generosity of donors.
