Make a Difference

This project is being run with in-kind support from a number of civic and community service organisations, and through the enthusiastic service of many, many volunteers. We have no government grants.

Your support means many will have the opportunity to share their story with others in a safe environment, bring healing and reconciliation. This will make an excellent contribution to social cohesion in Blacktown. This is just the beginning; this project is a pilot test. We plan to duplicate this story sharing project all over Australia.
