Hunter Prostate Cancer Alliance
http://www.hpca.org.au

Hunter Prostate Cancer Alliance is challenged to provide primary care support for men, their partners, families and colleagues when they seek information and services relating to a diagnosis of prostate cancer. 
 
We also work to encourage men over 40 years of age to take advantage of the simple "Little Prick" test know as a PSA test.  This test is performed by your GP and looks for Prostate Specific Antigen which can be the first indicator that something is wrong with the prostate. 
 
Early diagnosis of prostate cancer increases the likelihood of a full cure.
 
The Alliance is firstly targeting men over 40 years of age as the chance of developing prostate cancer for such a man is 1 in 8 throughout his remaining life. Also, men with a family history of prostate cancer as they have a risk of at least three times greater, than those who do not have such a family history, and should be tested from the age of 40.
 
HPCA Purpose
To assist individuals and groups of men and women with information about prostate cancer, in order to promote rational testing of men for this disease and to encourage the development of intellectual and emotional support systems for men diagnosed with prostate cancer and those supporting them.
 
HPCA Mission
  • Advocate a strong awareness within the Hunter New England region of the need for immediate initial testing and thereafter regular prostate cancer testing as frequently as available evidence dictates in order to curb this disease in its onset.
  • Provide primary care services to newly diagnosed men, their partners, families and colleagues to understand and come to terms with the complexity of this disease along with the variety of options available for treatment.
  •  Encourage the development of services that will promote a positive mental outlook for those affected by this disease and in those supporting them.
  • Emphasise the importance of continued education to recognise and deal with the many far reaching effects of prostate cancer, including the fact that many low grade cancers may be safely monitored without treatment.

Shelford Girls' Grammar - The Simpson Memorial Scholarship Fund
www.shelford.vic.edu.au

 

Paul Simpson joined the teaching staff at Shelford Girls' Grammar in 2008. He was a much respected teacher of Science and his particular passion was Biology. Paul was also actively involved in the coaching of girls' basketball teams.
 
To be in his company was to be in the company of a passionate and knowledgeable man. He had an extraordinary knowledge of plants and the natural world and his students knew this. He encouraged them to connect deeply with the environment.
 
The world was Paul's classroom and he never missed an opportunity to share his knowledge and passion for life. Paul believed that it was possible through education to make the world a better place, by inspiring our young people to be the best they can be. He was a great mentor to not only our students but staff members too. Paul brought every shred of his being to his role as a teacher and a coach. Paul lifted his students' vision of what was attainable, and he made our girls believe in themselves.
 
On March 3, 2011 Paul died tragically whilst on a snorkelling activity with Year 10 students from Shelford Girls' Grammar. The Shelford community wishes to perpetuate the memory of Paul Simpson with the establishment of a memorial scholarship.
 
The Simpson Memorial Scholarship Fund
The Principal of Shelford Girls' Grammar Ms Polly Flanagan and the Patrons of the Simpson Memorial Scholarship Mr Lindsay Gaze and Mr Andrew Gaze, encourage you to donate to this very worthy cause. The Scholarship will be an ongoing reminder to the wider community of the wonderful legacy of Paul Simpson.

About Us

 

The Arthritis Foundation of WA (Arthritis Western Australia) incorporating Osteoporosis WA is a non-profit, non-government organisation and the peak body for musculoskeletal disease in Western Australia.

The foundation is a national affiliate office of both Arthritis Australia and Osteoporosis Australia and relies on the generosity of the West Australian community for funding.

Mission Statement

The objective of the Arthritis Foundation of WA is to reduce the incidence and disabling effects of arthritis, osteoporosis and related conditions in the people of WA.

History

The Western Australian Arthritis & Rheumatism Foundation (WAARF) was inaugurated in October 1972, as a non-government organisation, through the efforts of Drs Phyllis Goatcher, Evan Owen and Roger Dawkins. Its first home was an office freely offered by the ANZ Bank in Murray St. Its main aims were Care, Education and Research.

 In 1991, the organisation's name was updated and changed to its present form. From this modest beginning, the Foundation opened its own custom built Resource Centre in 1994 after a successful Capital Fundraising Appeal, naming the building after Mr Bill Wyllie in appreciation of his significant personal contribution.

 In addition to staff offices, the Wyllie Arthritis Centre houses a hydrotherapy pool, gymnasium, seminar and board rooms, café, book shop and leased office space to other tenants.

Arthritis Western Australia offers a range of support groups and branches which have evolved from the self help courses conducted over the years.

As the population ages, the incidence of arthritis, an umbrella term for over 100 types of disease, is increasing at alarming rates and in 2004 was made the 7th Health Priority by the Federal Government enabling state wide Foundations to benefit by access to government funding.

Ecumenical Coffee Brigade (ECB)
http://www.coffeebrigade.com.au/

The Ecumenical Coffee Brigade was established in 1970 by Louisa Toogood who saw a need to minister to homeless and marginalised people within the Brisbane CBD by offering them food and a hot drink each morning.  Following her example, the ECB as a voluntary organisation, continues to provide these same services.
 
We are committed to ensuring that every day of the year the van goes out on the street to serve food and drink and offer a welcoming presence.
 
We seek to offer those we meet respect and acceptance by treating all with dignity.
We look for new ways of ensuring that the needs of the people we serve are respected and responded to whenever possible.

 

Bravehearts’ key purpose is to educate, empower and protect Australian kids from sexual assault.
 
Our Vision is to make Australia the safest place in the world to raise a child by 2020.  To achieve this we depend on business, government and community support.

As a result of its persistence, this distinction was acknowledged and supported by the Commonwealth Government and its COAG partners via the National Framework for the Protection of Australia’s Children (2009-2020).
 
It is only through increasing general awareness, increasing skills and capacity building for those working and living with children, preventative strategies, education and strong policies and legislation that we can accomplish Our Mission - to stop child sexual assault in society.  Our specialist services are instrumental in preventing the sexual assault of Australian children and giving hope and healing to the most vulnerable and precious members of our community – our kids.

Make-A-Wish Australia
http://www.makeawish.org.au

Our Mission

To bring magic and joy to children with a life-threatening illness by granting a cherished wish.

Our Vision

All Australians have the opportunity to share the power of a wish.

About Us

Established in 1985, Make-A-Wish Australia brings magic and joy to children and young people with a life-threatening illness by granting their most cherished wishes. We are an affiliate of Make-A-Wish® International and member of the Children's Charity Forum. We are the only children's charity in Australia to focus exclusively on wish-granting.

Wonderful Wishes

Wish children are between the ages of 4 and 18 years and live with life-threatening illnesses. Doctors, health professionals or parents apply to the Foundation to grant a wish to a child they know. Volunteer 'wish fairies' then visit eligible children and ask them to reach into their imaginations to think of their one cherished wish.

Children have amazing imaginations, and recent wishes from Australian children have ranged from:

"I wish to have a plasma television"

"I wish to meet an armadillo"

"I wish to go deep sea fishing"

"I wish to be a published author".

A team of local volunteers creates a magical wish-granting ceremony for the wish children and their families. Make-A-Wish is supported by a range of corporate and state sponsors, as well as over 1000 volunteers who make up the backbone to our organisation.

Bendigo Animal Welfare & Community Services
http://www.bawcs.org.au/

Bendigo Animal Welfare & Community Services (BAWCS), formerly Bendigo Animal Shelter, was founded in 2003 and is a registered charity. Our approach is unique in comparison to other animal welfare organisations. Rather than focussing on what people can do for animals, we instead focus on what animals can do for people. The end result is that both people and animals have the opportunity to share in a nurturing environment with positive outcomes for both.
With this underpinning philosophy, we provide programs in the key areas of Animal Welfare, Community Support and Education.
 
We operate under a Pro Life Policy which means we do not euthanase animals that come into our care unless they are suffering a debilitating disease or condition affecting quality of life and cannot be treated or if they have repeatedly attacked another animal or person and cannot be retrained.

ABOUT US
 
Bowel cancer is 90% curable if detected early. Despite this, it is the second most common cause of cancer-related death in Australia. The Jodi Lee Foundation exists to educate people about the importance of bowel cancer screening and that early detection saves lives.
 
Our primary objectives are to:
 
1. Promote awareness about the high incidence of bowel cancer and encourage early detection through regular screening from age 40
 
 2. Establish and promote a bowel cancer screening program that allows businesses to offer tests to their employees
 
 3. Build an online questionnaire, in conjunction with the Cancer Council SA and CSIRO, to help people self-assess their risk of developing bowel cancer based on their family history

Zaidee's Rainbow Foundation
http://zaidee.org/

Zaidee’s Rainbow Foundation is directed towards both children and adults so they can think about those who are waiting for a life saving operation and a suitable match for an organ or tissue. Think about giving this gift to others so they can live a better life and in some cases, just to live.

 

Zaidee Rose Alexander Turner – aged 7 years and 22 days died suddenly on 2nd December 2004 from a burst blood vessel in her brain called a Cerebral Aneurism. Zaidee’s parents, Kim and Allan, founded Zaidee’s Rainbow Foundation not long after.

At the time of Zaidee’s death the Turner family had been registered Organ and Tissue Donors for 5 years. As a result Zaidee donated her Organs and Tissues at the Royal Children’s Hospital, as were her wishes at the time. From this gift, the lives of 7 people (6 children and 1 adult) were improved and, in some cases, saved.

Zaidee was the only child in Victoria under the age of 16 years and we have been told one of the youngest Australians to donate her organs and tissues in 2004. She was only 1 of 6 children nationally to donate their organs.

Zaidee’s Story is directed towards both children and adults so they can think about others who are waiting for a life saving operation and a suitable match for an organ or tissue. Think about giving this gift to others so they can live a better life and in some cases, have a second chance at life.

Zaidee’s gift of her organs to others will allow them to have another birthday. 1 in 5 people on the transplant waiting list will never get the chance to have another birthday if people do not become registered donors.

The symbol is representative of hope; after every storm the sun shines and there is a rainbow. For those people on the transplant waiting list, the rainbow symbol offers them hope. At the end of their rainbow is an organ or tissue to improve their life – or in most cases – save their life.

In 2004 130,000 Australians died. Only 218 were Organ Donors.
