This year Reclink Australia celebrates its 25th anniversary.
Reclink Australia started from humble beginnings, a simple kick to kick at an oval in St Kilda. Peter Cullen, the founder of Reclink, working as a street outreach worker observed “that on the street outreach you saw people living in a lost world, where there seemed no clear pathways to opportunity, no easy positive way for them to be involved in the world.”
Back then, as it is now, the premise was simple. “Engage the most disadvantaged with structured sport, recreation and art programs. Something that would act as a circuit breaker of destructive behaviour. Something that would reconnect them back into the community.” Peter Cullen AM, Founder Reclink Australia.
Today, Reclink Australia operates nationally providing a diverse range of activities and over 80,000 sport and art participation opportunities aimed at building capacity for disadvantaged Australians.
We look forward to celebrating this milestone with our supporters.
