Why give? Hear it straight from the horses mouth at our Meet the Philanthropist Event!

One of our most inspirational events of the year, we can guarantee that you will leave the evening with an absolute spring in your step.

About the Philanthropist: Dr Bruce Robinson

As a leading cancer researcher, Dr Robinson is based at the QEII Medical Centre in Perth, part of the University of Western Australia. Bruce has over 20 years’ experience in lecturing on fathering at seminars and presentations to thousands of people in 5 countries.

In 2013, Bruce was awarded the prestigious Western Australian of the Year Award for his medical research and charity work, including his work with The Fathering Project.

About the Fathering Project

Did you know that kids with absent fathers are:

  • 4x more likely to experience mental health issues
  • 15x times more likely to be overweight or obese
  • Twice as likely to end up in jail?

With statistics like this it's no surprise that The Fathering Project is on a mission to equip fathers and father figures to engage more effectively with kids.
