Grant Story: Kulbardi Fund support men to fight violence
In May 2015 Aboriginal business leader and CEO of Kulbardi Office and Stationery Supplies, Kim Collard, established the Kulbardi Fund with the Fremantle Foundation.
The Kulbardi Fund was created to provide opportunities for disadvantaged members of the Aboriginal community particularly through employment and training, and the development of community projects specific to their needs.
Late last year the Kulbardi Fund threw their support behind the Aboriginal Male Healing Centre (AMHC) for The Sons of Fathers Family Violence and Sexual Abuse Conference.
The Conference brought together national experts, Australian practitioners and academics, private sector stakeholders, and Australian government representatives with the aim to facilitate debate across various sectors to discuss new approaches to practice and challenge traditional boundaries associated with the topics.
AMHC chief executive and founder Devon Cuimara said the main objective of the conference was to provide opportunities for Aboriginal men to meet and discuss the current research in a centralised location.
