Menzies General Appeal

Menzies Inc

Menzies: Caring for Kids is an organisation dedicated to supporting young people in Frankston and on the Mornington Peninsula. Over its 150 year history it has evolved many times to fulfil the needs of the community. Menzies has recently progressed through a significant period of change in which we have moved from our former role as a residential care service provider to a new focus on philanthropy, service and program support. 

Menzies core mission remains the same – to support young people who can no longer live with their families to be safe, educated and lead fulfilling lives. Rather than providing housing we will invest in direct programs that create more opportunities for some of the most disadvantaged young people in our local communities. Menzies: Caring for Kids is highly regarded in the region and is fully committed to the next phase of its development.

HOW YOUR FUNDS WILL BE USED

Menzies is currently funding the following projects within our community.

Youth Mini Bus Project

Menzies has provided a minibus for the Victoria Police Youth Resource Officers and partner agencies to use to transport disadvantaged youth living in Frankston and the Mornington Peninsula to community activities, events and programs.

CREATE Foundation

Menzies is funding CREATE Foundation to deliver ‘CREATE your Future’ workshops for up to 100 young people aged 14-25 in Frankston and the Mornington Peninsula, as well as 2 camps for 36 further young care leavers per year, to aid young people leaving care to reach their full potential.

Coalition of Frankston North Schools

Menzies have provided funding for a Paediatrician, Fellow (GP in training) and an Occupational Therapist, enabling access to these services for three government schools in Frankston North.
