With the end of financial year fast approaching, now is the perfect time to show your support for the Souths Cares charity by making a tax-deductible donation.
The COVID-19 pandemic provided a number of challenges for Souths Cares’ service delivery, however the charity has responded through establishing new initiatives which are supporting our community during difficult times.
With many families out of work, Souths Cares has been providing fortnightly food packages and wellbeing visits to elders and families across South Eastern Sydney and South Western Sydney, as well as providing free bread and pastries to the local community in Redfern three mornings a week.

The Rabbitohs Wellbeing Program is currently being delivered via Zoom workshops, which has enabled the Souths Cares team to continue to support school students’ health and wellbeing needs whilst schools are limiting classroom sizes and external visitors.
Other Souths Cares programs including Nanga Mai Marri (Dream Big), Deadly Youth Mentoring Program, New Careers for Aboriginal People (NCAP) and the Liverpool Opportunity Hub have also continued to operate whilst observing social distancing and government health guidelines.

Souths Cares Grants and Evaluations Manager, Angus Robilliard said there is increasing need to support our community during COVID-19.
“We’ve seen firsthand many families are struggling across a number of areas including their wellbeing, mental health and financial circumstances," said Mr Robilliard.
"As students transition back into classroom learning, many have fallen behind and are requiring additional and intensive support to get back on track."
Donating to Souths Cares will enable the charity to continue to deliver important health, education, employment and training initiatives for disadvantaged members of our community. All donations over $2 are tax deductible, you can donate by clicking here.
