ERFA supports Edmund Rice Camps Queensland, New South Wales, Victoria, Tasmania and Western Australia.

Edmund Rice Camps provide social learning opportunities through residential camps and recreational experiences for children and youth (7 to16) and families across Australia. Participants are socially and financially disadvantaged and at risk and Edmund Rice Camps experiences enable them to strengthen their capacities and sense of self-worth. Participants are referred by community service providers with whom ERCs work in partnership. Over 1,500 disadvantaged children are engaged and supported annually by around 1,800 young adult volunteers, aged from 17 to 25 who staff the camps.

Best Foot Forward 2021

We’re asking for your help so that SHE can put HER best foot forward.

Since the outbreak of COVID-19, violence against women and girls has intensified.

The opportunity to gain education and skills is the key to HER long-term empowerment.

Our goal is to raise $150,000 in 24 hours on the 12th November 2021, so that disadvantaged women and girls can have access to opportunity through education.
