What We Do

About Our Charity

Second Chance Programme Fund Raising Group Inc (SCP) was founded two decades ago by businesswoman Marjorie Morton and feminist/activist/scholar, Dale Spender in 2001. The not-for-Profit organisation was set up to address the distressing problem of women’s homelessness in Brisbane. Twenty years on SCP supports homeless and at-risk women and children in crisis care, long-term accommodation & domestic violence shelters all over Queensland.

 

We help remove the barriers for women and children to break free from violent homes. Our help extends all over Queensland – from Cairns to Ipswich, rural, regional and urban. We assist some of Queensland’s most disadvantaged women and children through more than 20 DV shelters, and partner with proven service providers such as Brisbane Housing, Anglicare Homelessness Services, and Combined Women’s Refuge Group.

 

SCP does not raise money to buy buildings or pay salaries. We raise money to fund programs that address the problem of women’s homelessness (many of whom have young children at risk). We’re a small independent committee of tenacious women, all working pro bono, no salaries, no office rent, no admin costs so 100% of the money raised goes directly to women’s homelessness programs.

 

As an organisation, SCP has no building, and no paid staff. Apart from the fee for public liability insurance, every cent raised by SCP is used to ‘get women off the streets’ and to help them take control of their lives.
