Clare Holland House Community Fundraiser launching 27 August 2020



The Clare Holland House Community Fundraiser is your opportunity to make a contribution to the expansion project and help enrich palliative and end of life care for more people in our region.


  • Over the winter months, we ran the Canberra Recovery Appeal and raised over $420,000 to assist local charities to recover from the impacts of COVID-19.

  • The Chief Minister's Charitable Fund Spring Grant Round is now open and accepting applications for up to $10,000 grants until October 9.

  • The Canberra Relief Network (CRN) was set-up in response to the community's overwhelming and increasing demand for food and non-perishable household essential items, following the Covid-19 Pandemic.

  • How well do you know Canberra? Vital Signs uses community knowledge and data to measure the health and vitality of our community in key areas.
