The people behind the Children's Cancer Welfare Services Inc are based mainly in rural areas of New South Wales and are acutely aware of the added burden cancer applies to rural families.
The Children's Cancer Welfare Services Inc has as its objective, to offer direct financial and practical support to families who have children suffering from cancer, particularly those families living in rural areas of New South Wales.
Such support might include financial assistance for a parent to travel and stay with their sick child while they undergo treatment. It may be possible to offer financial support for the purchase of mobility aids or childcare.
Other practical support might be to offer councelling opportunities for family members affected by the stress associated with dealing with cancer in a child.
The Children's Cancer Welfare Services Inc networks with other Associations, social workers, children's hospitals and community service clubs to identify and assess the families in need.
The Children's Cancer Welfare Services Inc receives no government funding and is totally dependant upon private and corporate donations, or the proceeds of any fundraising activity conducted by it or it's supporters.
