Helping children to receive medical care locally

'Our Kids' more formally known as the Northern Rivers Children's Health Fund was founded in 2001 by Dr Chris Ingall. The aim of 'Our Kids' is to improve the health services for children in the Northern Rivers area, by purchasing paediatric equipment for the Lismore Base Hospital and the surrounding satellite hospitals. Since being founded Our Kids Our Kids has purchased $1.8+ millions worth of equipment.

Our Kids also issue annual Community Grants; these are for families or organisations that care for special needs children. These grants purchase equipment, medicine and therapeutic items to help care for these children. These grants open in June each year and close July 1. For guidelines to apply click here 

Thank you for helping us help our kids!
