Trapeze Associates is firmly committed to making a difference in the local community where possible and is an active contributor to many organisations including;

CanTeen


CanTeen, The Australian Organisation for Young People Living with Cancer, is a national support organisation for young people (aged 12-24) living with cancer including Patients, Siblings, Bereaved Siblings and Offspring.

CanTeen was created by young cancer patients and its policies are guided by young people living with cancer. The touchstone of CanTeen is the belief that young people, through meeting and talking with one another, are better able to cope with the uncertainties of a cancer diagnosis. Significantly, CanTeen provides support through young Members who have 'been there done that'.

Members are able to participate in camps, recreation days, seminars, workshops and most importantly share their hopes and fears, partake in decision making, meet new friends and have fun together.

Trapeze is a proud sponsor of Canteen.

UNICEF Australia


Created by the United Nations General Assembly in 1946 to help children after World War II in Europe, UNICEF was first known as the United Nations.

International Children's Emergency Fund. In 1953, UNICEF became a permanent part of the United Nations system, its task being to help children living in poverty in developing countries. Its name was shortened to the United Nations Children's Fund, but it retained the acronym "UNICEF," by which it is known to this day.

UNICEF helps children get the care and stimulation they need in the early years of life and encourages families to educate girls as well as boys. It strives to reduce childhood death and illness and to protect children in the midst of war and natural disaster. UNICEF supports young people, wherever they are, in making informed decisions about their own lives, and strives to build a world in which all children live in dignity and security.

Working with national governments, NGOs (non-governmental organizations), other United Nations agencies and private-sector partners, UNICEF protects children and their rights by providing services and supplies and by helping shape policy agendas and budgets in the best interests of children.
