Elm Grove Sanctuary Trust seeks to improve the quality of life for all people free from discrimination due to race, religion, creed or social background.
Working in areas of support through education and the upholding of human rights; social justice and equality of opportunity we provide support to disadvantaged individuals and communites through educational programs, especially focusing on children and youth.
We have a strong commitment to our nation's First People and we seek to offer programs which aid “closing the gap” for Aboriginal children and youth within our mainstream educational system.
We provide support, counselling, and respite care for people experiencing challenge in their lives.
We encourage a responsible approach to health (spiritual, physical, emotional and mental) and our environment through seminars, workshops, symposia, lecture meetings and other educational programs.
We seek to establish and maintain relations with bodies having similar objectives to the Trust and we encourage contact and exchange of ideas with such bodies.
In response to the growing world-wide awareness of the environmental crisis now facing our planet, the Elm Grove Sanctuary Trust seeks through education and support of other organisations (who are working to provide a sustainable model of responsible action and development) to provide a more hopeful future for the generations who will follow us.
"If we will have the wisdom to survive, to stand like, slow, growing trees on a ruined place, renewing, enriching it: if we will make our seasons welcome here, asking not too much of earth or heaven, then a long time after we are dead - the lives, our lives prepare, will live here."
