Our Kids

Our Kids, more formally known as the Northern Rivers Children's Health Fund, was founded in 2001 by Dr Chris Ingall.

Our Kids aims to improve the health services for children in the Northern Rivers area by purchasing paediatric equipment for the Lismore Base Hospital, Tweed Hospital, Grafton Hospital and the surrounding satellite Northern Rivers hospitals.

Through the generosity of our community, Our Kids has purchased $2.3 million+ worth of paediatric equipment for our local hospitals.

This equipment benefits our community by helping kids stay local when needing medical care.

If you would like to make a difference to sick kids in Lismore and the surrounding region, please donate or contact Our Kids today.

Our Kids Community Grants open June 1.

Have you considered leaving Our Kids a gift in your Will?

When considering your Will and how you want your estate to be distributed, would you consider including a gift to Our Kids. A gift can be a specific amount or a percentage of your estate, and the funds will be used to help sick kids receive medical care locally.

Your gift could be used for specific equipment in our local Children's Ward, Special Care Nursery, Women's Care, Emergency, Mental Health or Educational Scholarships for our paediatric staff or to help our Community Grants program.

If you're considering leaving a gift in your Will, there are a few options:

For a simple standard Will

For simpler Wills, there is a free service with Our Kids partner, Gathered Here. Click here to proceed with your online Will.

 
For a more complicated Will

For more complicated Wills, we invite you to visit one of our local Solicitors who are part of the Far North Coast Law Society. 

If you have any questions regarding your will and leaving a gift, please consult one of our local Solicitors who are part of the Far North Coast Law Society.
