About the Cathy Freeman Foundation
The Cathy Freeman Foundation (CFF) was established in 2007 to work with remote Indigenous students, families and communities to improve education outcomes and inspire Indigenous students to achieve their goals and dreams.
The Foundation acknowledges the strength and wisdom that lies within remote Indigenous communities. Our work demands strong and trusting partnerships with community, Elders and school leaders. We partner with communities for the long haul, as we journey through the complexities of the work required to create sustainable social change.
CFF works with 1600 Indigenous children and their families across four remote Indigenous communities in Queensland (Palm Island and Woorabinda) and the Northern Territory (Wurrumiyanga and Galiwin’ku).
CFF implements five key projects across these communities, working with children from Kindergarten through to Year 12. The key outcomes of our projects include increased school attendance, increased Year 12 attainment, building the self-belief and self-esteem of Indigenous students to achieve their dreams and increasing the engagement of families and communities in educational events and activities. The Cathy Freeman Foundation inspires children to realise their own gold medal journey.
