SUPPORT ORGANISATIONS

PATRONS

As we are engaging with communities in areas on the Melbourne east coastline of Port Phillip Bay, we thought it important to connect with state MPs, who are vested with the responsibility of looking after their local communities and are  hands on with community support during past & current emergencies . We are honoured to have the following three patrons support our efforts in their communities: 

Brad Rowswell MP, State Parliament of Victoria

David Southwick MP, State Parliament of Victoria

Nina Taylor MP, State Parliament of Victoria
