IMB Bank Community Foundation supporting ADHD Australia
On Wednesday 27th June, Illawarra-based IMB Bank awarded funds to enable a new project which will expand a one-stop website for ADHD families across Australia.
ADHD Australia, Westmead Hospital’s Centre for Research into Adolescent’s Health (CRASH) and the Westmead Hospital Foundation (previously known as the Westmead Medical Research Foundation) have joined together to undertake a collaborative project which will deliver a modern website to support people with ADHD. The project is called ‘We Have The Answers’ and will be managed by ADHD Australia.
CEO of ADHD Australia, Len Russell, spoke on behalf of these three bodies during the ceremony held in Wollongong where the grant money was officially awarded to the project.
It was the first time since IMB Bank Community Fundraising began in 1999 that a third party was invited to present the keynote speech at such a function.
The reason for this was Mr Russell’s compelling case for the funding to help build a modern, functional and accessible website for the ADHD community. Mr Russell thanked Ms Jan Swinhoe, IMB Community Foundation Chair and IMB Director, for the generous support of the project and the ability to really make a difference for the ADHD community.
ADHD Australia will coordinate the ‘We Have the Answers’ project throughout the rest of 2018 and into 2019.
