Sydney Financial Planning has been involved in helping the community in many capacities over the past 27 years. More recently Bill Bracey has become involved with the Sir David Martin Foundation and is currently actively assisting with fundraising programs.
1 - Triple Care Farm
Located in Robertson, the Farm provides rehabilitation for young people between the ages of 16 and 24 with complex needs including those arising from drug and alcohol problems, mental health issues and homelessness. The program is run over 3 months and boasts a 75% success rate of returning these youths back into mainstream life. Follow-up support can involve assisting young people with finding somewhere to live, reintroducing them to education or even helping them find employment.
The program currently helps 100 young people and we would love to help the foundation grow this number to 200 per year.
2 - Creative Youth Initiatives
Based in Surry Hills, this is an innovative program that encourages marginalised young people to resolve issues through art and music.
3 - South West Youth Services
Based in Campbelltown, this organisation employs a counsellor to assist young people dealing with a range of issues to feel empowered towards independence.
Beyond supporting these programs, the Foundation helps with the continued education of youth through the Sir David Martin Foundation scholarship program.
Sydney Financial Planning has affected a donation program which encourages our staff and clients to join us in co-contributing to this worthwhile cause.
We are committed to matching any contribution up to the value of $500. Simply visit the Sir David Martin Foundation website, make a contribution and email us your receipt so that we can match it.
It would be great to think we can make a difference. We urge you to make a donation to this worthwhile foundation.
“As a dad of 3 children, from ages 16 to 21 I know how lucky my children are to have loving parents, leadership, as well as a great opportunity for a rewarding future. The cold hard facts are many children don’t have this and their life slowly spirals out of control.” Bill Bracey
