The Winter Appeal Ends 30 August 2019!
The Winter Appeal helps fund opportunities outside the NDIS for participants like Maryann to achieve their goals!
Like many of us, Maryann has dreamt of breaking the winter chill with a tropical holiday. Over the past few years Maryann kept that goal alive and with the support of The Winter Appeal, she was able to achieve her goal.
Maryann’s Team Leader and OC Connections Support Coordinator helped her to apply for funding from the OC Connections Co-Achieve fund which is resourced by the money raised during the 2018 Winter Appeal. Her successful application for the extra funds needed to support the trip enabled her to spend eight glorious days in the sun from which she has just returned. Staff and family have reported that she had a “fantastic time”, made some new connections and enjoyed new experiences during her adventure.
Please support us today! By giving generously you can help an individual achieve their own personal goals by having access to a range of opportunities that enable them to live independent and fulfilling lives. A tax-deductible receipt will be provided for donations over $2.
Did you know that there are still a number of things not covered by the NDIS? In fact, now more than ever, we rely on fundraising to help us ensure that people of all abilities have access to a range of opportunities that enable them to live independent and fulfilling lives.
With your contribution, together we can make a difference.
How can you help?
As a not-for-profit, we rely heavily on your support. Your valuable contribution (great or small) is much appreciated and will be used to provide people with the opportunities to achieve their goals from assistive technology through to support to gain employment. A tax-deductible receipt will be provided to you for donations over $2.
Where will your contribution go?
OC Connections aims to create as many opportunities as possible to people living with a disability.
Thanks to the amazing support of people just like you, the OC Achieve fund has previously funded the purchase of:
- Sporting equipment so that participants learn new skills, increase their health and fitness, and build the confidence to join a local club
- iPads to improve participants education and communication
- Public art exhibitions in which participants have showcased and sold their artwork
- Support for individuals to present at a statewide advocacy conference
- New furniture for our short-term accommodation facility
- Support for people to access new activities and events.
What is the OC Achieve Fund?
We all have goals and dreams, some small some big. By giving generously to the
OC Achieve fund you can help an individual achieve their own personal goals.
The OC Achieve Fund is a charitable fund which is solely dedicated to paying for necessary items that are not covered by the NDIS. Underpinned by our unique OC Achieve Model, the goal of the OC Achieve Fund is to support people with disabilities to:
- Be heard and valued, accepted and included
- Pursue dreams and aspirations
- Participate in their local community in a meaningful way
- Be supported to learn new skills and have new experiences
- Develop a sense of purpose and belonging.
