Our patron

Bridge Project Patron Mick Malthouse

As Patron of the Bridge Project, involvement and support from Mick Malthouse has been both inspirational and fundamental to our success.

Reflecting on his own life journey, Mick has a strong personal belief that young people should acknowledge their past (particularly if there are difficulties arising from that past) and not wear that past like a 'badge of honour'.

"Young people need a second chance, we can all assist either by offering an employment opportunity or opening a door for a young person to be given a fresh start.

"We all make the wrong choices in our lives and some of us are fortunate to have good role models to put us on the straight and narrow, these young fellows need that guidance."
