How We Help

This short Documentary provides an insight into the work of this great Charity named after a famous Australian & humanitarian as in Sir Roden Cutler VC through the eyes of the Clients, Volunteers and staff.

What is Sir Roden & Lady Cutler Foundation?

Sir Roden & Lady Cutler Foundation evolved from the Kings Cross Rotary Club 1990's 'Home and Away' project, which provided emergency transport for the young, the elderly and the disabled needing to get to and from vital medical appointments.

There are many vulnerable members of our community, including children, elderly and disabled, who cannot get to and from medical appointments, including people in affluent areas. The ramifications of this are numerous, they can be shocking and they are often silent.

The Impact
These include:

• Quickly deteriorating health

• Severe loneliness and lack of self-esteem and sadly…

• A huge sense of abandonment

Imagine if this was us or a member of our family or friends…

The Intervention

Our foundation established in 1999 was set up to address this gaping void.
It’s a simple and effective transport & care model that address three key needs:

1. For our clients it provides, not just free and flexible transport in the metropolitan area, but critical social connections in the community.

2. For our volunteer drivers, the bonds they form with clients, often making them feel like an extension of the family, give them a deep sense of purpose.

3. For that often forgotten section of society - the Carers - the service provides much-needed respite.

The Benefits
The benefits of our work are far reaching:
The effect on clients’ overall well-being is enormous, knowing that someone cares and can be relied upon to transport them when needed.

Because we’re a cost-effective volunteer service, our foundation reduces their financial burden and stress.

Importantly, we connect them to community networks to support their specific physical & mental needs.

The Sir Roden & Lady Cutler Foundation provides help when no one else can.
And there are thousands of people who need our service.

The Charity relies overwhelmingly on the generosity of the corporate sector and private donations.

Helping Where We Can

“The Foundation endeavours to help people most in need and when we received a request for a scooter from Mr Greg King of Kingswood we were more than happy to help“ said CEO Mr Vince Del Zio.

Mr King commented that this was a life changing moment for him and words cannot express how grateful he is to the Foundation.
