StreetWork aim to help troubled and ‘at risk’ young people aged between 11 and 18 affected by crime, mental health issues, violence, destructive relationships, rejection and isolation, homelessness, those disengaged from school, those with poor employment opportunities and those impacted by alcohol and substance abuse, to turn their lives round. This is achieved by redirecting young people through affirmative role modelling, one-on-one mentoring and practical support towards more positive and fulfilling choices in their lives.  StreetWork currently reaches over 200 young people per week. Their early intervention and prevention measures have an estimated benefit to the community of at least $8.05 million per annum.

Bunderra Foundation understand the great social need to help these young kids to turn their lives around. We are proud to be able to contribute to their very positive programs and outreach services to help the future generations of our great country.

Pride Empowerment Program

We continue to support Streetwork on the Pride Empowerment Program specifically targeting “at risk” young female clients.  The Pride Empowerment for girls is an early intervention program that focuses on improving the overall mental health and wellbeing for those young people who self-harm (which includes cutting, burning, hitting oneself, binge eating, starvation, abuse of  drugs or alcohol, including overdosing on prescription medications) and those with suicide ideations (which includes suicidal thoughts, consideration or suicidal planning). 


This program is specifically designed to empower young people by supporting them to improve their personal capabilities and the ability to respond to psychological stressors.

StreetWork's Social Return and Impact

October 2018

StreetWork seeks to give at-risk youth the same opportunities as their peers. To encourage them to grow, to achieve their dreams and to develop as a person with high self-esteem.  Although their focus is firstly and lastly on the teens they support, they are often asked to account in economic terms for the work they do.  PriceWaterhouseCoopers (PwC) carried out a 12 month study of StreetWork's impact and reported some very impressive findings:
- over 90% of StreetWork's funds go directly into funding its youthwork programs

- StreetWork's programs are very effective, with a turnaround rate of over 93%
-  for every dollar spent by StreetWork, there is a $16 return to the community.

Bunderra Foundation is very proud to support such an important and charitable organisation. Please visit their website to read more about the work they do, the results they achieve and the actual stories of the youths they have helped.
