Charity Partnership

FRINGE WORLD is an event that brings people from across our community together, and through this, we share meaningful experiences and build stronger connections. We believe it’s important to help use our platform and through our charity partnerships can collaborate and raise important funds to give back to the community each Festival. 

For the second consecutive year, we are joining forces to raise crucial funds in support of Ruah's vital services.  

Ruah Community Services delivers wrap-around support for people experiencing homelessness, family and domestic violence, mental health challenges, and legal advice and support. Through their subsidiary Suitsme, they also provide NDIS mental health services and recovery coaching. 

This year's collaboration takes on a special focus by shedding light on the collective effort needed to eliminate Family and Domestic Violence (FDV). Introducing the inspiring "What's Your Piece" campaign, Ruah aims to engage individuals in contemplating their role in ending FDV, emphasising that even small actions can create a significant impact.
