This year’s Wednesday charity is Autism Queensland. Autism Queensland is a not-for-profit organisation on with a vision for a life of participation, opportunity and choice for people with Autism Spectrum Disorder (ASD).

Autism Queensland provides specialised education on therapy and support services for people of all ages with ASD and their families and are Queensland's longest serving and most experienced agency in the delivery of early intervention, education and training, therapy and respite care.

Autism Queensland employs over 200 staff and delivers services statewide from centres in Brisbane, Gladstone, Rockhampton, Mackay and Cairns.

We hope that you will show your support for their services at this year’s conference. 








FSG Australia is a not-for-profit community organisation and NDIS registered provider focused on building people’s capacity and personal growth. FSG stands for Freedom, Social Justice and Growth with all 1000 staff and 500 volunteers committed to driving these three values.

FSG takes a blank page approach to community needs. When asked, ‘What does FSG do?’ we respond with ‘What do you need?’ And from there work together to identify and develop a solution.

FSG has the privilege of assisting over 3,500 people each week, with innovative services in the areas of disability, mental health, homelessness, aged care, family, children and youth services. There are always new services evolving as community needs become apparent. FSG is also a Registered Training Organisation offering qualifications in retail, logistics, hospitality and individual support.

We hope that you will show your support for their services at this year’s conference. 




 
Angel Flight Australia is a charity which co-ordinates non-emergency flights for financially and medically needy people. All flights are free and may involve patients or compassionate carers travelling to or from medical facilities anywhere in Australia. Volunteer drivers transport passengers from Airports to Medical Centres, also free of charge.
 
The generosity of Australians makes the vital work of Angel Flight Australia possible.  Angel Flight Australia is an independent, community-based charity.  Angel Flight Australia receives no government funding: we rely solely on the generous donations and support of community-minded people and organisations. Angel Flight does not expend its donated funds on fundraising, marketing campaigns or merchandising.
 
Transportation is supplied by volunteer pilots and aircraft owners whose flight credentials exceed the requirements of CASA and whose aircraft meet specified CASA and insurance minimums.  Ground transport is also provided by volunteers who donate their time and vehicle.
 
Volunteer pilots do not carry aeromedical staff or medical equipment so do not act as an alternative to the Flying Doctor (RFDS) or Air Ambulance.
 
With its current resources and infrastructure Angel Flight can accept and co-ordinate over thirty flights per day.

We hope that you will show your support for their services at this year’s conference.
