Now, more than ever, we must hold on to hope and come together as a community.
We deeply care for our clients and want them to succeed. With your help, we can be that safe place in their recovery journey.
Please give generously. Thank you.
Unfortunately, sometimes a fake charity might try to take advantage of your generosity and compassion.
It’s important to know what to look out for, and remember, First step will:
- never call you to ask for a donation
- never ask you for your personal identification or bank account details
- never put pressure on you to donate, or make you feel guilty
- always give you a receipt with our details on it.
Donations to First Step can be made securely on our website using a credit card, or you can direct deposit into our bank account (ask us for those details).
*If you think you have provided your account details to a fake charity, contact your bank or financial institution immediately.
**We also encourage you to report scams to the ACCC via the report a scam page.
If you have any concerns, please reach out to us and we’ll do the best we can to help.
