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.

Thank you for helping us help our kids!
