"I am extremely proud to be the International Patron of the Alannah & Madeline Foundation and support them in their invaluable work."
Through my close involvement with the Better Buddies Framework in both Australia and Denmark, I have seen first hand how children are taught to care for one another, to show respect and empathy and to share with one another. These children will grow into adults who live these values in their homes, their workplaces and communities, and they will pass them on to future generations.
The Foundation’s care of children who experience serious violence is commendable. By supporting their recovery from trauma, the Foundation is able to minimise the ongoing impact of the violence on their future, allowing each child the best possible opportunity to recover, become resilient and develop a stronger connection to their community.
It is the right of every child to feel safe in their community, in their school and in their home."
