The SOS Health Foundation was formed by physios to provide an avenue for physios and related health professionals to volunteer their time, skills, expertise and talents for those in need.
There are many within Australia who do not have access to physiotherapy and related health services due to remoteness, poverty and disadvantage. Our commitment is to improve the health of disadvantaged individuals and communities in urban and remote Australia by overseeing and facilitating teams of volunteers to step out of their comfort zone and provide caring health services and practical assistance where needed… to be significant in the lives of others.
This can only be achieved through your generous gifts and the support of our partners and volunteers.
SOS = Success or Significance
The name of our Foundation is designed to constantly challenge us to reflect on whether we are chasing Success as an end in itself, or more importantly as a means to be Significant.
Our logo is not just an aesthetic picture, but a message without words that reinforces our Foundation’s Statement of Purpose. The imagery of people linked together hand-in-hand tells the essential story that ‘people matter’ as they are embraced in a heart shape with the colour red at the centre to convey the compassion we extend to those in need.
SOS Health Foundation is a non-profit, public benevolent institution, endorsed as a Deductible Gift Recipient in Australia.
