Strengthening the Local Community

Doncare provides support to families, the aged, youth and disadvantaged in the City of Manningham and surrounds.

Our approach to working with the community operates on three levels:

  • providing assistance

  • prevention through support and education; and

  • enlisting community involvement.

Our services are primarily delivered by a team of over 500 trained volunteers who are managed by a small team of paid staff.
