Preston Campbell Foundation is an Indigenous-led and owned, not-for-profit organisation providing training and employment for Indigenous young people, working holistically and providing cultural safety and support.
Mannifera’s funding will complete the fit-out of a third social enterprise cafe in Brisbane’s Fortitude Valley that will provide hospitality training and employment opportunities to Indigenous young people.
In 2023, PCF received a renewed grant to enhance their digital capabilities as an organisation, in order to increase awareness of and engagement with their program offering, particularly in remote communities.
