JFA Purple Orange
JFA Purple Orange is the social policy agency of the Julia Farr Association Inc, a social profit organisation, working to assist people living with disability to get a fair go. Our work is anchored on the principles of Personhood and Citizenhood.
We know that many agencies and groups are working hard to strengthen their work in support of people living good lives. We also know that often the issues are complex and there is no one-size-fits-all solution.
We can assist you in a variety of ways to help your agency or group advance the life chances for people living with disability, their families, people living with mental health issues, or other vulnerable people. In addition to the knowledge and experience within JFA Purple Orange, we have good connectivity to other practitioners around Australia and internationally.
Julia Farr Housing Association
The Julia Farr Housing Association (JFHA) was established in 1999 as part of the Julia Farr Association Inc. We are an innovative social landlord managing a growing portfolio of accessible, affordable rental homes in metropolitan and regional South Australia. Our homes are ideally located to ensure people have a great place to live and are connected into their local community.
JFHA also project manages private construction and major home modifications to assist people to live in their own home. We also assist people living with disability to move into home ownership or shared equity arrangements.
The MS McLeod Benevolent Fund
The Julia Farr MS McLeod Benevolent Fund provides grant funding for projects that offer benefits to adults living with an acquired brain injury or a degenerative neurological condition.
The fund was originally established by a bequest from the estate of the late Murdoch Stanley McLeod, a prominent South Australian businessman and philanthropist, to help future generations of South Australians. Since then, other monies have been added to the Fund from a range of sources.
Trustees are interested in innovative initiatives that help people living with disability to have authentic personal control of their own lives and take up valued roles in community life. We are interested in hearing from any agencies or organisations that have an innovative idea to improve the life chances of people living with disability.
The Julia Farr MS McLeod Benevolent Fund most commonly funds work conducted within, or in partnership with, organisations, however individuals are encouraged to contact us to discuss funding opportunities.
Julia Farr Trust Funds
Julia Farr Trust Funds administers three trust funds designed to assist people living with disability. These are the General Distribution Fund, Short Stay Holiday Fund and JFA Noske Christmas Fund.
Individuals must meet eligibility criteria to apply for these trust funds.
