Evolving from a proud tradition of care dating back to 1975, today the Leukaemia Foundation of Australia extends its support across the entire blood cancer spectrum around the country.
Life for someone diagnosed with leukaemia was hard and there was little support. Treatment meant months of chemotherapy, severe side-effects and isolation from their family to remove the risk of infection. Parents were not allowed to comfort and care for their children, and family had to navigate the psychological challenges alone.
FGF (formerly FGM) was formed in 2007 by a few good folk who wanted to combine fundraising with business networks and acumen to assist various not-for-profits in the community. FGF hold approximately four fundraising events per annum raising funds for various charities including; Kids Under Cover, The Man Cave, Mirabel Foundation and Ardoch, amongst many others. To date FGF has raised well in excess of $700,000.
Our objective is to support charities where our donations matched with advocacy will make a significant contribution to the charity, directly impacting the lives of recipients. FGF now adds the We Make A Difference rewards program to our fundraising efforts, providing FGF members with another platform to generate funds for our supported charities.
EquiEnergy Youth is a charity aiming to reduce youth suicide, self harm and psychological distress across Australia and beyond. We deliver consulting services and training for professionals (i.e. educators, child/adolescent mental health support systems) and families to build capacity in the community to support the mental health of young people. Our approach is evidence based, stemming from thousands of hours of clinical experience and a Phd research project conducted by our Clinical Director Dr Stephen Spencer (PhD).
We coach the best way to respond to young people in distress using our psychological first aid framework called the TAR3 framework and how to develop support plans for individuals with mental health challenges. Also, among many skills, participants of our training learn how to help the young people in their care build coping, resilience and positive help seeking behaviours.
