Also known as “QCoal Foundation”, THE TRUSTEE FOR Q COAL FOUNDATION is a medium-scale charity established in 2011. Their main activity is registered as social services primarily serving other charities.

Resilient regional and remote communities are built on the pillars of health, education and liveability. QCoal Foundation (QCF) develops programs to deliver sustainable improvements in each of these pillars for regional and remote communities across Queensland. In developing our programs, QCF's approach is based on a social venture model that provides support for the development and trial of innovative solutions to community identified challenges. Data captured during the trial phase is used to measure effectiveness and forms the basis to achieve a sustainable operating model to ensure improvements continue to be delivered over the long term. In 2013 QCF partnered with the Royal Flying Doctor Service (Queensland Section) to address the chronic lack of oral health care in regional and remote communities. Over the initial four-year trial period our mobile dental service provided care to over 8,000 patients in 21 regional and remote communities using a state-of-the-art mobile dental unit. Data collected during the trial clearly demonstrated that mobile oral health delivery was an efficient and effective approach for rural communities without compromising standards of patient care. The RFDS Dental Service is now a sustainable mobile health service that continues to deliver the highest standards of oral health care across Queensland. In 2018 QCF partnered with Financial Basics Community Foundation (FBCF) with the aim of improving financial resilience, with a particular focus on life skills education for high school students. Research has identified that younger people are typically more likely to experience sever financial stress than older people and financial stress us a key factor in many areas of mental health, family violence and poverty across Australia; making building financially resilient communities a critical area of need. Together QCF and FBCF have developed the Ca$hEd Up - Developing Financial Skills for Life program to address this need. During the initial 2 year trial the program has been delivered to students across Queensland. In 2020 the trial will be expanded nationwide with data from this expanded trial expected to support the evidence already gathered to demonstrate the effectiveness of the Ca$hEd Up approach in improving financial resilience. In addition to these major partnerships, QCF continues to seek opportunities to contribute to building sustainable regional communities by investing in new community-led initiatives targeting health, liveability and education.
