Hands Up for Canberra Giving Day


There are so many worthy charities, it can be tough deciding who to donate to. Through this Appeal you have the ability to choose one of many that speaks to your heart.

With your support, on 9 March 2021 the Hands Up for Canberra Giving Day will see many of our local charities and organisations access much-needed funds for the essential work they do, such as:

Helping the 1 in 200 people

who are homeless (second highest rate in Australia)

Providing support services

to the 1 in 4 young people facing mental health problems

Offering a helping hand

to the 1 in 6 young people with caring responsibilities

Assisting the 1 in 25 people

with a severe or profound disability to live a full life

Together, we can support our local charities and organisations, while continuing to assist those Canberrans who need it most.

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.
