CSBP leverages and is actively involved in WesCEF’s community partnerships that support Aboriginal and Torres Strait people in our community. This includes providing employment and mentoring opportunities for the Aboriginal population in Kwinana.
The Clontarf Foundation exists to improve the education, discipline, life skills, self-esteem and employment prospects of young Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander men and by doing so equips them to participate more meaningfully in society. WesCEF formed its own partnership with Clontarf at Kwinana’s Gilmore College in 2014. CSBP actively supports this partnership through worksite visits and school-based traineeship/work placements.
