SOS Health Foundation was formed to provide an avenue for physios and other allied 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 other allied health services due to remoteness, poverty and disadvantage. Our commitment is to help improve the health of disadvantaged remote indigenous communities by facilitating teams of volunteers to step out of their comfort zone and provide caring health services along with health and wellness education where access to these is 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.
How you can help
The success of our programs depends on compassionate people who share our vision and desire to provide quality allied healthcare for indigenous Australians in remote communities.

Your physio, podiatry, OT, dietetics and other allied health professional skills are of particular value, but not essential. Your contribution will benefit others immensely by meeting the most basic health needs of the disadvantaged.
Donate to us
Every gift, no matter what the amount, will go a long way to supporting health programs for disadvantaged individuals and communities throughout Australia. Help us improve the holistic physical health and wellbeing of those in need.
Join a Fundraiser
The SOS Health Foundation relies on the generous support of the community and our generous donors to enable us to continue our work. You can make a positive difference in the health of others by fundraising on our behalf.
