'Our Kids' more formally known as the Northern Rivers Children's Health Fund was founded in 2001 by Dr Chris Ingall. The aim of 'Our Kids' is to improve the health services for children in the Northern Rivers area, by purchasing paediatric equipment for the Lismore Base Hospital and the surrounding satellite hospitals.
We also administer an annual Community Grants programme to assist families in caring for children with special needs.
