BUSHkids Annual Report 2020-2021

How you can help BUSHkids’ work Volunteering opportunities to support the frontline work of BUSHkids teams have, understandably, been limited by COVID-19 precautions and restrictions over the past two years, but the commitment of our honorary Friends of BUSHkids (FoBk) groups continues undimmed and is now even more important than ever. To discover more about how both individuals and businesses – as well as other community organisations – can support FoBk activities, please contact your nearest Centre or our Brisbane Office. Estates, legacies and trusts Year ending 30 June 2021 $ Thank-you Our heartfelt thanks and great admiration go out to all those who, in whatever way, have supported our regional and rural children and families this year. Everyone at BUSHkids sincerely expresses the appreciation of our clients and staff for the assistance and encouragement given by our fellow Queenslanders, community groups and local organisations, service clubs, media, health, welfare and education personnel throughout the state. Funding provided by the Commonwealth Department of Social Services ‘Families and Children Program’ and through the NDIA enables BUSHkids to extend our early intervention and early childhood early intervention services to families in need or at risk in regional areas of Queensland and is very much appreciated. Financial assistance given by the Queensland Government through the departments of Health and Education is gratefully acknowledged, as is the valuable support of our many small business and corporate partners, sponsors and suppliers– please see our ‘CONNECTIONS’ on the inside front cover.
