Seed Foundation Australia was a not for profit established by Founding Chairman, Michael Gleadow in 2015. Seed provides end to end wrap around support for Indigenous students looking to pursue a career in health or social services. This support involves individual case management of students looking to undertake a bachelor degree at university or a traineeship at school or after they complete school.
The heartbeat of Seed, began with Connect 'n' Grow, a Registered Training Organisation, that has delivered nationally recognised health training to Indigenous students since 2012. Seed was established to leverage the momentum of this health training. Becoming a not for profit has allowed Seed’s services to become nimble and responsive to the highly complex needs of a range of community, and to operate across multiple sectors.
At a community level, the success of Seed has inspired a ground swell of interest regarding health issues and opportunities in health and social service industries. A higher proportion of students are considering higher educational pathways and careers within their local health and social service industries. Universities and health and social service partners are expressing a renewed commitment to providing our students with medium to long-term career prospects.
THE HEARTBEAT OF SEED,
BEGAN WITH CONNECT 'N' GROW.
