NCIE was incorporated in 2010. Since opening they have involved over 20,000 Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander people in their life-changing programs, community forums and local events at the NCIE Centre in Redfern. This large facility in Redfern provides opportunity for local children to excel at sports, culture and dance.
Goodman provides funding for an After School Program, the employment of their facility manager and the lease and running costs of their vans. We provide expertise in facilities planning, budgeting and maintenance plans.
In addition, Goodman also fund the employment of the NCIE facilities staff and have provided skilled expertise to assist in the management of the upkeep of the Redfern facility. This year our support was extended to also pay for two vans to allow the Centre to better facilitate young people to attend events and opportunities.
Goodman has been an integral part of supporting Indigenous young people and creating positive social impact. They have supported our signature After School Program (ASP) since it began in 2010. The ASP with Goodman’s support has now grown to empower 50 children a day.
