Sisters of Charity Foundation

Founded in 2000, the Sisters of Charity Foundation provides hope, dignity and practical assistance to those suffering from disadvantage and social isolation.

Every year the Foundation provides grants of up to $15,000 to a range of innovative community projects that break down social isolation and alleviate the impact of poverty on individuals and families. The grants support small organisations that don’t typically attract funding from government or other institutions, working at the grassroots level and truly making an impact.

EISS Super is proud to fund two grants in 2021: Family Inclusion Strategies in the Hunter Inc (FISH) and Carevan Wagga Inc.

EISS Super will be supporting Family Inclusion Strategies in the Hunter’s Peer Parent Support Advocacy Program. The program provides peer support and advocacy for parents and families whose children were removed and placed in care due to child protection concerns, or who are at risk of having children removed from their care. The program provides court support, phone line support, and morning teas and other peer-run group gatherings for parents and families.

EISS Super will also be supporting the Carevan Wagga Program, which helps make a difference to those in the Wagga community experiencing food insecurity and disadvantage. Due to COVID-19 lockdown measures, Carevan’s pop-up meals service has now pivoted to a new model: frozen meals are prepared at a warehouse, then collected and distributed to those in need by local charities. EISS Super’s support will help cover electricity, telephone/internet and insurance expenses for Carevan’s warehouse in 2021.
