Sharon Bird MP
SCARF is honoured to have Sharon Bird, Federal Member for Cunningham, as our inaugural Patron. Sharon has shown her support for the refugee community in many ways over past years.
She fully supports the aims and objectives of SCARF and we appreciate her endorsement.
Sharon was the official guest at the launch of SCARF on 29 October 2005 and delivered a to speech in the Federal Parliament to highlight her commitment to our work the following week.
Lord Mayor Gordon Bradbery OAM
SCARF was delighted when Gordon Bradbery, newly elected Lord Mayor of Wollongong City, accepted the invitation to become Patron alongside Sharon Bird.
In January 2013, Gordon agreed to become inaugural ambassador for SCARF’s outstanding social enterprise initiative, Green Connect. At the official announcement of this new relationship, Gordon endorsed the value of the project saying “It’s a great way for refugees to get to know the community, learn the language and engage in meaningful employment”.
SCARF is delighted to have Gordon as a voice for our work in the wider community.
