At HenderCare Foundation, we are committed to improving the lives of vulnerable children and young people living with disabilities who are unable to live in their family home.
In addition to the regular services provided by the Foundation, we fulfil this commitment through community-based partnerships that benefit children and young people.
Working with the Morialta Trust Inc., the Foundation was proud to recently offer two grants, The HenderCare Foundation Remote Communities Grant and The HenderCare Foundation Disability Grant.
The HenderCare Foundation Remote Communities Grant
The Foundation’s Remote Communities Grant was awarded to the Indigenous Literacy Foundation (ILF).
The support of the grant will allow the ILF to publish more books into languages that indigenous children and families speak at home, encouraging a greater engagement with reading. The ILF work with remote communities to help deliver books that are age and developmentally appropriate, which allow children to develop essential pre-literacy skills and positive experiences with books.

The HenderCare Foundation Disability Grant
This grant was awarded to the Riding for the Disabled Association of South Australia.
The new ramp at RDA’s Northern Centre will provide access to services for current wheelchair clients who cannot adequately access the service at the moment. The ramp will also allow for new participant reviews and will meet all current safety requirements for anyone using the ramp.
We look forward to sharing further information with you about the project as the ramp is installed.
