Hume Coal Charitable Foundation supports the Sir David Martin Foundation in 2018

The Hume Coal Charitable Foundation is proud to once again support the Sir David Martin Foundation in 2018 through the contribution of a $10 000 donation to assist in the delivery of education and training programs at their Robertson facility, Triple Care Farm.

Charitable Foundation Chairman, Mr Terry Oakes-Ash OAM, said that the foundation was proud to once again support an organisation such as the Sir David Martin Foundation and its Triple Care Farm.

“Their work in the local community has changed the lives of many young men and women through programs such as their training and education initiatives which provide the residents with critical skills for obtaining meaningful and sustained employment into the future.”

Hume Coal Project Director, Mr Greig Duncan echoed the support of Mr Oakes-Ash and emphasised the importance of providing the opportunity for useful qualifications to today’s youth to ensure they put their best foot forward to lead a happy, healthy and productive life.

The Hume Coal Charitable Foundation offers funding across two rounds for organisations which focus on education, indigenous programs and not-for-profit pre-school child care. Interested organisations are encouraged to apply by downloading an application form at www.humecoal.com.au/community/

Background

The Sir David Martin Foundation, established by the former Governor of NSW in 1990, is a charity devoted to helping youth in crisis, working to help disadvantaged young Australians get off the streets, away from unhealthy situations and into care and rehabilitation. Issues such as substance abuse, homelessness, mental illness, unemployment, disengagement from society and family breakdown are widespread among those we help.

Mission Australia’s Triple Care Farm (TCF) majority funded by the Sir David Martin Foundation, is a residential rehabilitation facility for 16-24 year olds which provides treatment and support for these issues, as well as assisting young people to return to education and training to find pathways to employment and a healthy life.
