“I want to acknowledge the suffering of all those affected by the devastating bushfires. Our thoughts and prayers are with those experiencing loss and trauma as a result of these terrible events. As the crisis unfolds we hope to be in a position to consider requests from communities who need our help.
Almost every day I see the vital role that strong communities play in times of need and crisis, and in the recovery period that follows. With your help our work continues to be in supporting and caring for vulnerable young people and their communities.
Many communities in the areas we work are in crisis and having spent a lot of my life in the South Coast, I know that these people have always supported me and my organisation. In this devastating time, I extend my support back to these communities. “
