Vision

Our Vision is to meet the most basic needs of people.

Our Mission is to bring together those with the need for help and those with the need to help, that both may experience significance.

Our Process is to unite and inspire a network of caring friends to serve those in need.

Our Invitation is for you to experience significance by partnering with and Network of Caring so we can change the lives of others.

The Needs
The needs that have gripped our hearts over the years have usually fallen into three categories: children, chairs, and choices.


CHILDREN - helping the youngest of the needy

Youth Insearch
Youth Insearch is a community organisation that coordinates programs focusing on resolving adolescent issues at a peer level. Young people, between the ages of 12 and 17, come from varying social and cultural backgrounds. The Youth Insearch theory "peers supporting peers" utilises the experience of extensively trained young people, who support and guide other young people. Youth Insearch operates 28 programs a year throughout Queensland, Victoria and NSW.

Red Kite - Red Kite aims to ensure that every child and young person diagnosed with cancer in Australia is empowered to cope with the emotional, social and practical consequences. By alleviating the financial and emotional stress and enabling children, young people's families and their support networks to develop their strengths and skills.
Red Kite assists the whole family to achieve that positive end.

At the Ark - At the Ark assists families and individuals dealing with all facets of sexual abuse. They support these hurting families as well as churches and other organisations that are facing the difficulty this tragedy brings.

P.A.R.T.Y - Run by the Royal Brisbane & Women's Hospital is running a program, with the support of RBWH Foundation, to educate youths about the potential consequences of alcohol and risky behavior. The Prevent Alcohol and Risk-related Trauma in Youth (P.A.R.T.Y.) program demonstrates what happens when a teenager is involved in a trauma from the arrival of the paramedics through to rehabilitation and physiotherapy.


CHAIRS

Camp Breakaway - San Remo NSW
Breakaway enhances the lives of children and adults with physical disabilities. It is a place where people with disabilities can enjoy a break from the institution in which they live or a break from their family routine. Breakaway encourages self-reliance and independence that continues long after the camp ends. Network of Caring co-sponsors a number of camps held throughout the year.

4 ASD Kids - An early intervention program for children with Autism. 4ASD kids assists families to access early intervention for their child with Autism Spectrum Disorder by offering partial or full financial support in the early intervention program.

Battens Disease Support and Research - Battens Disease is an inherited disorder of the nervous system that usually manifests itself in childhood. To date it has always been fatal. The rarity of the disorder means that few doctors are aware of it and parents of course want to know, on a practical level, how they can best help their child. BDSRA provides a communication network, information and emotional support to families of persons with Battens Disease. BDSRA maximizes opportunities for persons affected and educates all concerned.
