Five Bridges runs programs that directly benefit the local community. Working with local elders in the Ipswich and Brisbane regions, a range of programs have been developed to meet areas of need for Indigenous people and their families, as well as supporting the wider community.

With the success of these programs, Five Bridges is currently expanding its capacity to enable other communities access to these highly successful programs and support Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander families across Australia. If you are interested in partnering with Five Bridges to deliver programs in your community, please contact us here.
