The Doreen (Whittlesea) Relay For Life.

Did you know that each day we lose 30 Victorians to cancer, and see 87 new cancer diagnoses? At Cancer Council Victoria, we’re determined to change this – but we need your help.

By taking part in Cancer Council’s Doreen (Whittlesea) Relay For Life, you’ll be raising awareness and important funds that ensure our life-saving work can continue. You’ll be funding ground-breaking cancer research, prevention programs like SunSmart, Quit and LiveLighter that educate your community on how to cut their cancer risk, and support services led by experienced cancer nurses that help all Victorians impacted by cancer.

Foster care

As you may be aware, Anglicare provides support to some of the most vulnerable families in Victoria. The Department of Human Services Child Protection Unit have declared that our local communities are currently in crises to meet the increasing demand for placing children in out of home care. Anglicare’s role is to recruit, train and support the special families who voluntarily provide foster care to vulnerable children. Due to the current crises, we are desperately seeking to increase the number of foster carers to ensure these children can be placed in a safe and nurturing home. Foster Carers come from all walks of life – you don’t have to be a superhero! Contact Anglicare on 8470 9999,

As well as reporting directly to Victoria Police or the Commission, people can now report racism at some local community organisations or online (

To deal with racism in Victoria, we need to know where and when it happens, how often and who’s doing it. As a community, we can work together to raise awareness about racism in Victoria and work together to stop it.
