Congratulations to community partner Clontarf
The success of the Clontarf Foundation was recently recognised when the Prime Minister the Hon. Malcolm Turnbull and Minister for Indigenous Affairs the Hon. Nigel Scullion announced a significant increase in federal funding for its programs. Reflecting Clontarf’s expansion program across Australia, the additional funds will see the Foundation grow from 5,800 to more than 10,500 participants by 2020.
Wesfarmers was Clontarf Foundation’s first private sector partner, and remains one of its long-term community partners today. We congratulate Clontarf on its success, the quality of its programs and the impact they have on the young men and families with whom they work. Clontarf’s growth is recognition of the strengths and talents of its 300-plus, full-time staff members who work tirelessly in the field, and also the support received from partners, schools, families, Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander communities and other stakeholders who have generously supported Clontarf over the years. Wesfarmers looks forward to continuing the journey with Clontarf to reach even more Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander boys, their families and communities across the country.
A 30 minute video which provides a brilliant insight into the impact Clontarf is having on the ground aired recently on the Fox Footy channel, focussing on the boys from the West Kimberley Academy in Broome, Western Australia. Take a look at it here.
