The Sir Roden & Lady Cutler Foundation is a charity established in 1999 to assist people in urgent need of transport to meet their medical and health needs. It helps especially the elderly and those who are physically handicapped who have no one else to turn to be mobile, and to improve and enhance their quality of life.
The Foundation was formed to follow Sir Roden’s example of serving fellow Australians and providing for the neediest in Australia. It started in Sydney with the aim of extending services throughout NSW as the need and opportunity arise.
In its short history it has rapidly grown to meet an important community need through the ‘Pick me Up Service’ as well as providing essential funding through the Special Circumstances Grant.
The Foundation is a self- funded organisation and relies heavily on the support of local community organisations, generous sponsors and benefactors.
The objectives of the Foundation are:
- To relieve persons in Australia who are in necessitous circumstances.
- To relieve persons who are unable to attend to their necessities of life without transport assistance (including the infirm, the aged, the incapacitated, the disabled, the intellectually impaired and the delinquent.)
- To provide to persons who, by reason of their infirmity, age or disability are immobilised, transport to hospital, medical practitioners, social workers or to other venues to obtain the necessities of life.
- For the public benefit, to assist persons or organisations providing to persons in Australia direct relief in cases of disability , distress,
helplessness, misfortune, poverty, sickness and suffering.
To help when there is no one else who can.
