As for the rest of 2021 and beyond, Owen says there are important lessons to take from the past year to steer the organisation into the future.
“The big thing is about being more effective in our engagement with our donors, sponsors and partners to build stronger relationships and advocating for funding from the government,” he says.
“We also want to continue to collaborate with other charities and build those into strong relationships so that we all benefit as a community.”
What must remain the key message, Owen stresses, is why working to cure childhood cancer is an essential health issue for all Australians to be aware of.
“We are lucky to have advocates across Australia to help build that awareness of what these kids are going through and why The Kids’ Cancer Project is so important,” he says.
