Our world 2017
As part of a community-building initiative in the Grafton area, which we are joining as operator of the New Grafton Correctional Centre, we partnered with a national charity, Midnight Basketball Australia, to host two eight-week basketball tournaments for local youth.
Midnight Basketball Australia aims to: provide a safe, healthy and positive environment for young people who may be vulnerable to harmful and anti-social behaviour; combat drug, alcohol and other physical abuse by young people; and support the learning needs of young people and encourage them to participate in mainstream society and their local community.
In addition to a fun, healthy and educational activity every week, Midnight Basketball provide safe transport, free meals and essential life skills workshops. We also provided funding to enable a team of Grafton players to attend the national tournament in Sydney.
