WILLIAM WILBERFORCE
William Wilberforce MP championed the cause of slaves in England in the 18th and 19th centuries until the abolition of slavery became a reality in the Commonwealth.  He also led the movement for the second reformation of manners, seeking to see transformation in society and a reduction in crime.
The William Wilberforce Foundation trains local people to run these programs and courses in their own local community. Not only does this mean the programs and courses can be run in many locations around Australia, it also means the courses are truly local, run by local volunteers who care about making a difference in their own community.
William Wilberforce Foundation was established in Australia to support Churches and community groups to care for marginalized and disadvantaged Australians, particularly focusing on; ex-offenders, addiction and family breakdown.
THE FATHERING PROJECT

Our purpose is to inspire, encourage and support fathers and father
figures in our community to be more present and pro-active at every stage
of their kids¹ life. A positive relationship with their kids means they
are:

  • Less likely to use illicit substances
    Have improved mental health and a stronger sense of worth resulting in
    less self-harm and suicide
  • Better in health and general wellbeing
  • Further developed cognitive ability
  • Performing better in schools

After all, our work is benefiting kids around Australia.
