The Alceon Team is proud to support the following charities
The Black Dog Institute vision is to create a mentally healthier world. A not-for-profit organisation and research institute dedicated to improving the lives of people affected by poor mental health. Internationally recognised as pioneers in the diagnosis, early intervention, prevention and treatment of mental illnesses such as depression and bipolar disorder. We are also at the forefront of suicide prevention, and prominent in the delivery of treatments and programs using mobile and online technologies (e-Health).
Our unique approach incorporates clinical services with cutting-edge research, health professional training and education programs to workplaces, schools and the community. We combine expertise in clinical treatments with innovative research, to develop new and more effective strategies for people living with mental disorders.
We place emphasis on empowering people in the community to recognise the symptoms of poor mental health in themselves and others, and providing them with evidence-based tools and programs to enable them to live mentally healthier lives. By reducing the incidence of mental illness, promoting mental wellbeing and reducing stigma, we can help people to reach their full potential. Black Dog Institute relies on its partners and the broader community to help support this important work.
JCA is the communal hub of the NSW and ACT Jewish community partnering with 23 member organisations to provide the Jewish community with outstanding programs and services in the areas of education, community care, health, aged care, disability, political representation, security, cultural services and sport.
Through JCA’s Strategic Planning Department the organisation engages in research consultation and analysis to ensure that the community’s needs are effectively and cost efficiently catered for today, as well as ascertaining and preparing for the communal needs of tomorrow.
As a not for profit, JCA relies on the generosity of our community supporters. Our donors play a pivotal role in helping us achieve our vision of ensuring a sustainable, vibrant and secure Jewish community, today, tomorrow, forever.
The Steve Waugh Foundation provides life changing support and champions stories of those living with rare diseases – a supportive network for children and young adults (0-25years) with a rare disease that would otherwise have nowhere to turn. 1 in 10 Australians are affected by a rare disease, over 400,000 are children. Many feel isolated. A major motivation behind our Foundation is no one should have to stand alone; everyone needs a team to support them. We are ‘somewhere to turn’.
Generous donations go directly to life changing Individual Grants for medicine, specialised equipment, treatment and items that improve quality of life for a child affected by a rare disease. To date the Foundation has supported over 238 different rare diseases and over 1,454 individuals through grants and programs.
The only Foundation of our kind in Australia, we’re there for children and families who face the challenges of a rare disease with ‘strength of character’ every day. Our focus is their wellbeing and difference we can make to their lives.
“The words ‘strength of character’ are the very pillar that binds the Steve Waugh Foundation, from the people we help to those that help us. These very words best exemplify the attitude to life shown by each and every one of the children we support. This is the cornerstone of what we stand for, and dictates the choices we make as an organisation.” Steve Waugh AO
