Odyssey House NSW is dedicated to the provision of a dynamic and diverse range of services to our clients who are adults with alcohol and other drug dependencies who frequently have chronic health, behavioural and psychological issues. Odyssey House recognises that Alcohol and other Drug (AOD) problems can have a significant impact on children and other family members. We also aim to support and make our services relevant to the widest range of people, welcoming all Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander peoples, those from culturally diverse backgrounds, and those from LGBTQI communities to our services. We are thankful to the support of the Australian Fund Managers Foundation for supporting Odyssey House NSW Parents and Children’s Program that is designed for parents in recovery to live with their children in private rooms in self-contained cottages with communal dining facilities. This program is designed to develop and grow to nurture family relationships that encourage children to realise their full potential and help to break the generational cycle of addiction.
Sydney Children’s Hospital, Randwick is grateful for the generosity of The Australian Fund Managers, who, through their annual event, raise vital funds to support our brave young patients. Last year, The Australian Fund Managers raised funds for the Infectious Diseases Fellow. Fellows are brilliant young doctors who are trained by the senior specialists to become the specialists of the future. Thank you for making an important investment in the future of child health. The Hospital’s many needs include purchasing equipment so Hospital staff can continue to provide our children with the very best of care; renovating and refurbishing wards to create a positive healing environment; and vital child health research projects.
Australian Fund Managers Foundation has been pleased to all offer fundraising support to the following organisations.
