At Proveda, we are firm believers in the saying, “It Takes a Village…”
Our purpose since we opened our doors in 1994, has been to build a stronger and better ‘village’ for all. We continue to deliver vital community care services, as we have done for over thirty years, and through our community programs, we enable opportunities for people to play a role in improving and growing the power of community connection.
Ours, like many organisations in the community care sector, are seeing a higher number of people affected by social and psychological ill health. Last year alone, we saw a 28% increase in people accessing The Way Back service for suicide prevention support. Other common and growing conditions impacting families and the community are dementia and memory loss, as well as social isolation.
We know for some, that giving to a cause they care about is personal. We want you to know It’s personal for us too.
If you would like to chat about why you want to give, or how we will use your donation, our community impact team are here and ready. You can choose to donate to us or to our Foundation and you can read more below about what this means.
We wish to thank and acknowledge the Foundation for being so committed to supporting the work of grassroots organisations like ours. This grant allowed us to provide a comprehensive peer support platform to parents/carers, and lay a solid foundation for a strong and lasting future, delivering more to the community. We are forever grateful for this additional support.
Donating to Proveda is donating to support the work we do with customers and the community. Often the programs that we are funded (or not funded) for, provide essential support to the community in areas like mental health, suicide, and social isolation. Your donation would support some of these vitally important services and allow us to help more people who might slip through the gaps, or who might not meet government funding guidelines.
Your donation could be used to support any of the following services:
- Care coordination assistance
- Suicide prevention support programs
- Supporting families bereaved by suicide
- End of life planning and resources
- Volunteer program
Donating to the Proveda Foundation, is another tangible way you can contribute. This way you are supporting other local charities and organisations who are making a real difference on the ground.
Proveda Foundation provides grant funding of up to $50,000, in support of the expansion of the work done by grassroots organisations who are helping the community in important and meaningful ways.
Based upon a set of submission guidelines, we do our due diligence on applicant charities, ensuring that the charity has sound business practices, credibility and capacity to deliver. They are also required to evaluate the difference the grant has allowed them to make in the community.
