These studies will ultimately lead to improving health outcomes for children, not just in South Australia but worldwide.

“Cops for kids is honoured to be recognised as a Winner for Outstanding Achievement in the Australian Charity Awards 2017.

This award acknowledges the wonderful contribution the members of Cops for Kids make to the community of South Australia in the support of services for the health, welfare and safety of its children.

This award is recognition of each member of Cops for Kids and each member’s dedication to helping sick and disadvantaged children”.

“Today, charitable organisations are facing ongoing challenges in their operating environment. Measuring the performance and impact of their initiatives has become an important part of operations for the third sector,” Australian Charity Awards Program Director, Ms Tara Johnston, said.

“In this context, the sustainability of charities depends more than ever on their performance management and their ability to innovate. Being innovative has the potential to elevate charitable organisations in their efforts to achieve a long-term social impact and financial sustainability.

“The Australian Charity Awards 2017 are proud to acknowledge the role of charitable organisations in Australia and commend the eight organisations recognised for the execution of innovative initiatives that have significantly benefited charitable causes,” Ms Johnston added.
