Bright Print Group Support Australian Charities At the Bright Print Group, we believe in helping our mates. We have supported our favourite charities for many years. Some of our favourites are... TURN THE TABLES www.turnthetables.org.au Bright Print Group are happy to be supporting ‘Turn the Tables’, a project developed by Mama Lana’s Community Foundation.This foundation works tirelessly to provide healthy meals to members of our community who’ve fallen on hard times or are sleeping rough.They provide hot meals six nights a week plus toiletry packs, sleeping bags and blankets to keep people who find themselves in tough circumstances warm and well fed in the greater Penrith region. Mama Lana’s also liaises on behalf of people needing a voice or support with organisations like Centrelink, Penrith Council and the Department of Housing. Long term solutions as well as immediate help are a strong focus of this amazing organisation.‘Turn the Tables’ is an initiative involving long term sponsorship from companies, so a permanent centre can be set up with dining/kitchen facilities, a community garden and a space where people can come for advice and support. Our aim is to help them take their operations from home kitchens and serving in a car park to a fully functional, safe and welcoming space. POLICE & COMMUNITY YOUTH CLUBS www.pcycnsw.org Police & Community Youth Clubs (PCYC) is a non-profit organisation which partners with NSW Police to reduce and prevent youth crime, develop in young people skills, character and leadership, and promotes physical activity in life. PCYC runs 60 clubs across the state where young people can enjoy a wide range of sports, arts and recreational activities in a safe environment. Some of the young people who attend PCYC are referred through the juvenile-justice system, Courts, the local Police (LAC) or schools. A range of resources and specially designed programs are made available to PCYC Police who work closely with these ‘youth at risk’, towards the prevention of youth crime and repeat offences. Due to the continued support of many businesses and individuals in NSW, PCYC has been able to expand its work in youth development, which means more young people leading full, healthy lives, and safer communities.
