  • Projects that provide improved health outcomes for the most disadvantaged, isolated, and vulnerable in our community.
  • Projects that provide improved life outcomes for marginalised and at-risk young people in our community.
  • Projects that provide improved social wellbeing for the most disadvantaged or marginalised in our community.
