North Queensland Flood appeal
Thank you for your donation to our PCYC Queensland North Queensland Flood Appeal. Every dollar raised through the appeal during March and April will go directly to support our clubs and members affected by this terrible natural disaster.
To meet the needs of young people in the Townsville community, PCYC Queensland is amongst several key partners involved in the newly formed Townsville Youth Recovery Task Force (YRTF). The task force’s focus will be to meet recovery needs of young people through activities and programs such as free ‘youth pop-up events’ and will be delivered with the help of our Indigenous Programs team. Read more about how we’re helping the Townsville community here.
Your donation will help make a difference by providing much needed support. Effects of the floods and extreme weather will take months and years for many of those locals to recover from, as many families have been forced to rebuild their lives.
You are of course most welcome to nominate your local club to make a general donation to show your support. Otherwise, we will direct all donations during March and April to our North Queensland Flood appeal.
Thank you for supporting PCYC Queensland. You make the difference. Donate now or make a regular monthly gift.
As a trusted and respected registered charity, our staff and volunteers have been working with the Queensland Police Services (QPS) to meet local community needs since 1948. Today, PCYC Queensland is a leading provider of youth and community programs, services and facilities. Our three pillars – youth development, crime prevention and community engagement – underpin all that we do.
Importantly, our clubs play a vital role in the lives of over 50,000 young people each year to have positive experiences, get involved in a range of sports and activities, and benefit from great mentors and community leaders including our service police officers.
Many of the young people we support are at risk, disadvantaged or disengaged. Approximately 95% of our clubs are in low socio-economic areas, with 60% in the top 50 high needs areas of Queensland.
Almost 90% of our work is funded through your kind donations and our fee-for-services. The remaining is from various levels of government and our QPS partners. Any surplus revenue goes straight back into our programs and facilities, as well as the communities in which we serve.
With your support, PCYC Queensland can be in a stronger position to continue to deliver recurring initiatives that give young people purpose, focus and motivation to make positive choices.
Together we are building safer, healthier communities through youth development.
