May 2014


It is hard to believe that almost four years ago a parent of a child at Uni Camp for Kids casually said to me how she wished there was something similar for her teens.

Since we first established, UCFT has steadily increased our focus towards mentoring,  educational and team building activities and fostering goal setting and positive conversations. The last three years have been an amazing journey and I am so proud of what our Committee has created and the difference we are making in the lives of disadvantaged Perth teens.


Thank you so much to everyone who has volunteered, donated or encouraged me throughout – I could not have done it without you. A very special thank you to Soni Gunasekera and Brenton Laws who, like me, have been on Committee since the start and have worked so hard to see our dream come to fruition.


I am so pleased to be handing the reigns to the new President Ciara Stapleton. She brings a wealth of experience from Uni Camp for Kids, Edmund Rice, Save the Children and as a health professional, and I am excited to see UCFT continue to grow and build on our strengths under her leadership. Congratulations to the 2014 Committee!
