The Stockman Sports Foundation unites inspirational Australians who believe in the power of sport to communicate and effect positive change. Some of the challenges we face to reach young people in remote, rural and regional Australia include:
The Stockman Sports Program is powered by the generosity of the Australian public. It is unable to reach remote, rural and regional Australian youth without the generosity of businesses in Corporate Partnership, Community Grants, Public Donations and Public Fundraising Campaigns. In a world full of worthy causes, the reality is this is our greatest challenge, believe with us and help us make a difference.
Developing effective partnerships with organisations, businesses, communities and individuals with common goals to have greater reach and lasting impact.
Issues such as mental health and well-being, alcohol consumption and personal development can be avoided in remote, rural and regional Australia in particularly among men. They can be considered somewhat taboo. Fortunately, there are some brilliant organisations and programs shedding light on the topics that need open discussion and are making positive peer conversations about these issues more possible.
Developing and implementing relevant programs tailored to specific demographics and area’s that make a real difference and cause lasting change.
Australia is the worlds sixth largest country and the worlds largest island, the majority of it (96.55%) is classed as very remote, remote and outer regional. The challenge is traversing the distance and reaching the individuals, communities, towns and cities that need to be reached.
