We improve children’s health by supporting and funding world-class research and clinical treatment, and by providing care and entertainment for sick kids and their families.
Our plans involve expanding our retreat program to support up to 30 young people – a doubling of our current program. The speed with which we achieve this goal will depend on our capacity to generate further funding for our work – particularly the funding for more paid staff hours for engaging with and supporting our kids. Then, it may take weeks or months of one-to-one relationship-building before they are ready to participate in a camp. It is inevitably a slow process. We have our model and we have the property, and some funding to develop the property. Further funding will allow us to increase our staffing and grow the program. Make a Difference does not receive any ongoing Government support so we are totally dependent on donations, and the money we raise ourselves, to fund our operations. We operate primarily in the west and south-west of Sydney, and the Shoalhaven (Berry to South Nowra), in NSW.
