How We Fund Our Community Aid
How do we afford to offer free services
Good question! we looked outside of the box for ideas - and saw that our team has many different skills in which businesses pay us for consulting services as well as other programs we deliver like budget food parcels. These are ways in which we cover the operational expenses.
Our fee-for service/projects throughout the year fund our services to assist our partnered groups so we can continue to deliver aid to community services and the community direct, we will also apply throughout the year for government and private grants - which will assist in operational costs.
We also have the abilities to hire out specific skilled services if needed to councils & government in emergency services and community sector if required for natural disasters.
the surrounding areas (directly and through partnered groups/organisations) to eliminate insecurities which are result of redundancy, low employment options, single parent families, emergency bills which must be paid immediately resulting in no more in weekly budget.
Yes we will assist even if there is a natural disaster
Unlike many businesses or groups who close up when a threat is coming close - When a disaster happens - we also aim to sustainably assist the community with essential aid with stock, established networks, and our volunteer program/intern program (unemployed youth program). Our risk assessments show a very low risk due to the highly experienced partnerships and skills matrix of our team.
Additionally, in the event of natural disasters (for which our management and volunteers were actively involved during the recent Cyclone Debbie both during the active phase and the clean up), we observed the presence and utilization of food banks would have been invaluable as access to food and water alone becomes scarce.
