Charity Link Inc

Charity Link is a collaborative organisation which provides the framework for 100+ West Australian charities to work together make the biggest difference possible to the disadvantaged in WA.

  • Type:Charity,Non Government,National Focus,DGR 1 Status
  • Charity:Child Welfare

Details

  • Established:Amalgamated with Variety charity Apr 2017

Description

Charity Link is a collaborative charity organisation which provides the framework for more than one hundred West Australian charities to work together and as such, make the biggest difference possible to thousands of disadvantaged West Australians.

Established in 2001, Charity Link is a registered charity which acts as a central fundraising and coordinating body to provide material aid via our 100+ ‘member’ charities to West Australians experiencing financial hardship and/or crisis.

By working together and using a collaborative approach, Charity Link is able to minimise the cost of fundraising, increase purchasing power, reduce duplication in competition for funds and therefore ensure the optimal use of resources.  By using this approach alleviates the pressure experienced by our members and so allows them to focus on their core services.

The innovative, yet logical, approach used by Charity Link is unique to Western Australia and is embraced by Lotterywest who generously provide an annual grant to cover Charity Link’s administration costs.  This grant means Charity Link can guarantee 100 per cent of all donations and sponsorships are directed to the purchase of material aid for all appeals

Our vision is to create a future where all West Australians to have “necessities of life”.  As such, Charity Link aims to foster an environment of team work by adding value to those organisations supporting families and individuals in crisis, while promoting opportunities for all Western Australians to be involved in our appeals.

Description

PLAYSCHEMES

Playschemes are the largest of our Early Childhood Care and Development programs in Australia and have been running for more than 30 years. They provide children with opportunities to learn, grow and develop through safe and supported play.

Why early childhood learning is important

A child’s development between birth and the age of five is critical to their health, learning and success later in life. Play is crucial - it provides the basis for cognitive, physical, social and emotional learning and development. Unfortunately, many socially and economically disadvantaged families in Australia aren’t able to provide their children with opportunities for play-based learning.

Save the Children’s Playscheme program

Playschemes provide regular early learning activities and parenting support for vulnerable families and children under the six years old. Run by trained Early Childhood staff, the free playgroups help young children learn to play, socialise, establish routine and prepare for school.

In some communities we run Intensive Supported Playschemes, which may include home visits and additional support. During the weekly sessions, Family Support Workers also provide parents with advice and links to community services and other families in a non-threatening environment.

Each session is carefully designed to ensure its relevance and appropriateness for children from a range of backgrounds, such as culturally and linguistically diverse, newly arrived and refugee families and Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander communities.

Where we run our Playschemes

We have Playschemes in major cities, rural and remote communities in approximately 100 locations across Australia. This includes remote Aboriginal communities such as Mornington Island and Doomadgee in Northern Queensland, Kununurra in Western Australia, Wilcannia inNew South Wales, the Far West Coast of South Australia and Wadeye in the Northern Territory.

How we know our Playschemes help children develop

Based on national and international best practices for early childhood learning, our Playscheme program supports thousands of vulnerable children and their families each year. In the last two years alone, the program has grown to assist children and families in an additional 20 locations across Australia. In 2013 alone, more than 4,000 children attended our Playschemes.

Who makes our Playschemes possible

We are grateful to the Australian Government, Queensland Department of Communities, Child Safety and Disability Services and Corrections, the NSW Department of Family and Community Services, the Telethon Foundation and to generous Australians who fund our Playschemes.

Description

Living with illness or injury can cause enormous strain in the lives of children and their families. The pain, loneliness and isolation that sick children feel dominates their lives, and they often miss out on normal experiences that healthy children take for granted.

Starlight provides programs integral to the total care of seriously ill children – while health professionals focus on treating the illness, Starlight is there to lift the spirits of the child, giving them the opportunity to laugh, play and be a child again.

"You hear laughter walking down the corridor before you see the kids."
