Generous donation by the Gold Coast City Council

The GCCC has taken the lead in ensuring that young people can access BRAKE on the Gold Coast through schools

Today I received a cheque for $25,000 from the Gold Coast City Council on behalf of BRAKE. This is the second such sponsorship from the councils and we thank them sincerely for their belief in the BRAKE program

From all at BRAKE, I’d like to thank the council and especially GCCC Senior Road Safety Advisor, Karen Burton, who provides invaluable assistance to BRAKE both in development and roll-out on the Gold Coast as well as assisting in facilitation of community courses on the Gold Coast. The assistance from the GCCC is greatly appreciated as it has taken the lead in ensuring that young people can access BRAKE on the Coast through school or community courses.

The council grant ensures that the program can be provided free of charge to young people and their families. The funds have been used to roll-out the course, development and to be able to provide a coordinator to coordinate and manage BRAKE on the Coast.

BRAKE is provided free of charge to all secondary schools that are able to facilitate BRAKE. All materials and in-service training are provided by BRAKE so that school teachers ‘facilitate’ the course.

We thank the Gold Coast City Council for such wonderful support and commitment to the safety of young people on the Gold Coast, but also for their commitment to road safety itself.
