At Birch Foundation, we are committed to providing emergency assistance to individuals and families who are facing financial difficulties or sudden crises. This includes eligible applicants who are going through domestic violence.
We offer a range of support services, including food, clothing, furniture, personal and household items. Our volunteers and donors are dedicated to helping those in need, and we are grateful for their generous contributions. For those who are going through domestic violence, we can provide basic necessities through our op shop such as clothes, white goods, toys, and food from our cafe.
In addition to our provision of basic necessities, we can provide food gift cards from local grocery stores. We understand the financial strain that these crises can cause and aim to alleviate the burden for those facing difficulties.
At Birch Foundation we believe in the importance of community support and aim to empower individuals and families to regain their independence. We provide a safe and supportive environment, free from judgment or discrimination, and our team is committed to providing compassionate care and assistance to those in need.
At Birch Foundation, we understand that transportation can be a significant barrier for people who need to attend medical appointments. This is especially true for individuals who may have limited mobility, financial constraints, or who require specialized transportation due to medical conditions.
To help address this issue, we offer free transportation services to eligible applicants once a fortnight. Our aim is to ensure that everyone has access to the healthcare they need, regardless of their circumstances.
Our transportation service is provided by trained and compassionate volunteers who are dedicated to ensuring that our clients receive the support they need. We understand that medical appointments can be stressful, and we strive to create a comfortable and supportive environment during transportation.
At Birch foundation, we believe that every child deserves the chance to reach their full potential. That's why we offer programs for troubled, disengaged, and at-risk school-aged children and youth. Our programs provide a safe and supportive environment where children can engage in fun and educational activities.
Our programs are run by our dedicated volunteers who hold Blue Card, Police checks, and First Aid and CPR certifications. We provide life skills programs, which aim to equip children with the tools and knowledge to succeed in their personal lives. We also offer free fortnightly movie nights and monthly ten pin bowling and fishing activities to the children and youth in our programs.
Our dedicated volunteers offer court support and personalized assistance. Upon meeting our criteria, eligible domestic violence victims will receive support for referrals to trusted legal professionals for their legal needs. They may also access discounted items from our op shop and cafe, basic necessities provided free of charge for those facing financial hardship, as well as free internet, printing, and scanning services at our charity office. We strongly believe in creating a safer and supportive community, and we are here to help.
In certain circumstances, domestic violence victims may need to apply for a protection order themselves. While we are not a legal practice, our organization provides referrals to trusted legal professionals for domestic violence victims in need of legal assistance. Eligible individuals, approved based on their circumstances and the organization's approved budget, may have all or part of their legal costs paid in full or in part. Through this service, we aim to assist domestic violence victims in exercising their legal rights.
At Birch Foundation, we are dedicated to providing support and companionship to people who are eligible and meet our criteria to use our services. Our charity relies on the commitment of volunteers who are ready to lend a helping hand and make a positive impact in the lives of others.
We understand the importance of maintaining independence, and our volunteers are here to assist individuals who are eligible and meet our criteria with various daily activities such as shopping, transportation, and other essential tasks. We strive to ensure that these individuals receive the necessary support to live fulfilling lives.
In addition to our hands-on assistance, we offer informative NDIS (National Disability Insurance Scheme) information sessions led by a support coordinator. These sessions aim to guide individuals and their families through the NDIS process, helping them understand how to access the appropriate supports. We believe in empowering people who are eligible and meet our criteria with knowledge and ensuring they have the resources they need.
Filling out NDIS and My Aged Care applications can often be overwhelming, which is why we offer assistance with the application process. Our volunteers are available to help these individuals who are eligible and meet our criteria with filling out the necessary forms, and we provide free access to internet, printing, and scanning facilities to make the process as seamless as possible.
