NDCHS acknowledges Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander people’s strong connection to country and community, and that our work within the community takes place on their traditional land. We offer our respect to the elders of these traditional lands, and through them to all Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander people.
NDCHS is an independent, not-for-profit community health service with centres in Kerang, Cohuna, Boort, Pyramid Hill and Quambatook. Our service area includes the Gannawarra Shire and the northern end of the Loddon Shire, with some of our services also extending into the Buloke Shire.
As we are a not-for-profit organisation a majority of our income is raised through funding, fundraising and donations like yours. Government funding does not fully cover the costs of providing all of the services of NDCHS and therefore we need the support of the community we serve.
Demand for our services has continued to increase, with little to no increase in funding. With our goal of supporting our community to achieve better health outcomes, we need your help.
How will money raised through donations be used? Every dollar counts and can make a big difference to a member of the community and assist them to lead an everyday life in good health. Your donation will help us to increase existing services and develop new services and programs to meet the health needs identified in our service area. You will be providing support and reassurance to someone not unlike yourself, ensuring access to health services delivered locally with a personal individualised approach.
You have the power to make a difference, to build a healthier community and shape the lives of people at risk and disadvantaged community members who could be a friend, colleague, family member or neighbour.
Donations to NDCHS of $2 and over are tax deductible. Upon receiving your donation, NDCHS will send you a letter of acknowledgement and a receipt. If you would like to make a donation, you can do so by clicking HERE, call (03) 5451 0200, or drop in and speak to any of our reception staff.
