about KIND

KIND was established in 2008 in the Douglas region as a not-for-profit organisation, by local people for local people, to raise, administer and distribute funds to assist children in need of support who have been diagnosed with a terminal or debilitating illness or injury.

Discreet, immediate, short term and long term support is provided by KIND to assist affected children and their families.

Monies are primarily raised through fundraising ventures, community donations, assistance of other agencies and grants. Visit our Calendar of Events page to see what events are planned.

KIND provides a bridge between the child’s needs and the assistance provided via other external agencies. KIND aims to provide help where government and/or other agencies are unable to so.

During 2013/14 we assisted fifteen (15) local families with funds to help with travel to critical medical appointments and general day to day expenses which prove difficult when having to care for a seriously ill child.  The assistance provided amounted to nearly $20,000.   

Your support of this organisation is vital to the continuing success of our mission; the children of the region thank you for your assistance.

If you are aware of a family who may need our support, please contact one of the committee members via our email - info@kind.org.au
