After the unpredictable year of 2020, many Canberrans were left in a vulnerable state with most of their daily needs put at risk.

That is why this appeal is so important, as we ensure that the local issues remain addressed and supported by the charities who ensure that those who need it most are cared for.

By supporting the Hands UP for Canberra Giving Day, you will be supporting our local charities and community organisations through Hands Across Canberra (HAC). HAC is a local not-for-profit organisation who creates pathways and connections, joining those who have funds and time to donate with those who need the assistance.

With your support Hands Across Canberra can continue to provide essential support to our community.
