Roots of Change is a storytelling platform dedicated to the Alumni community of The Funding Network Australia. Here we share their stories of ingenuity, courage, determination, spirit, growth and the impact these grassroots organisations have had, as a direct result of funds and support received from The Funding Network community.

Down the Track exists to support disengaged and at-risk youth, promote engagement and self-esteem and reduce youth crime.

Operating in remote areas in Central West New South Wales, they achieve this by providing these youth, 90% of whom are Indigenous, with training, education, employment pathways and community connection. Without the support of Down the Track, these youth are on a downward spiral of continual disengagement from their communities and positive life opportunities.


2018 Pitch
Funds raised: $100,000

Lake Cargelligo is a tough little town in Central West NSW, and it needs a hand. In this small community there is only one service that can provide employment and support to young people who have become disengaged. Lana and Jai-James know first hand the amazing potential these young people have and were pitching for funding to continue and grow the Down The Track program, so they can reach more of these young people and become sustainable.
