Bellarine Community Health is an independent, not for profit, non-government organisation which has been working to service the health needs of local people for more than 40 years. 

We are funded through government agreements, grants, private donations and a small amount of revenue from client fees.

The generosity provided from donations allow us to respond quickly when service needs emerge and to provide health services that people on the Bellarine think are important. Single and regular donations or a charitable bequest are simply ways our community have said 'thank you' to Bellarine Community Health and allow us to continue our great work.

To discuss bequests, speak with your solicitor or trustee company or contact us directly: [email protected] or (03) 5251 4679
