Right now, we are at a crisis point. The reality is, we can no longer afford support for everyone who needs it.
Outdated government funding structures mean that our unique, integrated team is not funded to work together. Limitations and conditions on government funding mean that our team cannot keep up with demand.
But that doesn’t stop us. We continue to work with government to find a better way forward, while offering our front-line services to as many people as humanly possible.
That’s why we’re asking you to stand with us and the 1,852 clients who are working so hard to turn their lives around and who trust First Step to support them with their mental illness and addiction.
Your generous support before 30 June is not just about access to doctors, lawyers and mental health nurses – it’s about showing our clients that you believe in them. In the mental health sector, we call it a ‘strength-based’ approach – and we rely on you for some of that strength.
Please give generously.

We will never call to ask you for a donation or for your bank account details. If you think you have provided your account details to a fake charity, contact your bank or financial institution immediately.
