Join with Oxfam to campaign for Australian Aid in 2015

Oxfam is working toward a world of economic equality and you can help.

Extreme economic inequality – one of the biggest barriers in the fight against poverty – is out of control and getting worse, with just 80 individuals now owning as much as the world’s poorest 3.5 billion people.

Australians are generous people, and as one of the wealthiest per capita nations in the world, we can and must help to reverse this shocking trend. But instead of rising to the challenge, the Abbott Government has instigated the largest aid cuts in Australian history and turned its back on the world’s most vulnerable people.

Right now, Australian aid is on a path to its lowest ever level, despite rapidly rising inequality and growing humanitarian need.

Supporting Oxfam

Phoenix Rising For Children (PRFC) is an accredited out-of-home or foster care provider based in the Sydney greater metropolitan area and Hunter Central Coast of N.S.W, Australia. PRFC was founded in 2001 to provide quality foster care to children and young people in N.S.W, including contemporary, quality, family-based foster care and effective and specialist support services to children and young people and their families. PRFC operates ethically, effectively and empathically with a view to achieving quality outcomes and a satisfying working environment, and as such we support organisations that encompass similar ideals.

Have you considered fostering a young one? PRFC undertakes regular planning and evaluation and has a focus on personal development and training. We are always interested in hearing from those passionate about making a meaningful difference for a child in foster care or a family requiring assistance. If you would like to become a foster carer and join our team providing effective and meaningful care to children and young people, please contact us!

We also provide family contact services, and these specialize in contact supervision for children in out of home care with their parents and other significant family members.

We can be reached at mail@phoenixrising.org.au
