On 18 March 2015, our CEO Jen Dalitz attended a special function at Admiralty House with Peer Support Australia Patron, His Excellency General, the Honourable Sir Peter Cosgrove AK MC (Retd), and Lady Consgrove.
This is the first gathering that the Governor General has hosted since his appointment almost a year ago and he chose to spend the occasion with representatives from several of the charities he is Patron of, that have the common theme of supporting Australia’s children.
Amongst those present included representatives from Scouts Australia, Girl Guides Australia, Pathways Foundation, Young Endeavour Youth Scheme, Kookaburra Kids Foundation, SchoolAid Trust, Life Education Australia, The Boys Brigade, Lions Australia, Royal Life Saving Society and Special Olympics Australia – and of course Peer Support Australia.
His Excellency gave a lovely speech in which he praised the work of all these organisations in strengthening our community, and giving our young people the best chance at life, leadership and driving lasting change across our nation.
He also gave special thanks to all of us who carry out the work in our organisations, recognising that in serving Australia’s children, you are serving our nation.
