Born out of Camp Quality
With the guidance of world leading experts, Camp Quality created the Oranges program to support staff and volunteers to be positive and resilient in their work with kids facing cancer. The incredible success of the program led to the birth of The Oranges Toolkit social enterprise.
Our energising purpose
Since 2017, the purpose of our social enterprise is to build positive wellbeing, mental and emotional agility in workforces and communities, returning profits to Camp Quality to support kids facing cancer in Australia.
The origin of Oranges
Working with children facing cancer requires a special mix of skills, passion and commitment. The employees and volunteers at Camp Quality, Australia’s leading childhood cancer charity, consistently provide exceptional support to children and families facing a heart-breaking cancer diagnosis. In the late 2000s, Camp Quality recognised that it needed to support its employees and volunteers to be positive, optimistic and resilient despite the adversity they were often facing.
With guidance from world-leading experts, Camp Quality introduced the science of positive psychology, neuroscience and emotional intelligence to staff in an innovative training program. The program was called Oranges, an acronym for wellbeing: Optimism, Resilience, Attitude, Now, Gratitude, Energy and Strengths.
The practical Oranges program delivered exceptional results, improving resilience levels and the mental agility of Camp Quality staff and volunteers. It led to an uplift in innovation and productivity across the Camp Quality workforce. Improved workforce performance ultimately supported the organisation to enhance its impact and reputation, ranking in the top 5 most trusted national charities in the Australian Charity Reputation Index (RepTrack) in 2017. Camp Quality continues to uphold community trust, ranking as Australia’s most reputable children’s cancer charity for kids aged 0-13 in 2019.
