Our Work

In 2022 MPF consolidated work in two main geographical areas, Western Port and the Southern Peninsula.

In each area a cluster has formed, made up of community and education partners who focus on early years intervention, evidence-based teaching, and integrated family and wellbeing support.

The commitment from MPF community partners in kinders, primary schools, secondary schools, and community support services in these clusters to work together, innovate and lead systems change has been outstanding. Their courage and vision to go against the status quo for the benefit of the children, young people and families in their communities is a stand out feature of this work.

MPF is a Public Benevolent Institution with Deductible Gift Recipient Item 1 tax status. All donations are tax deductible. In 2017 the George Hicks Foundation made a ten year commitment to fund the operational costs of the MPF. Projects are funded with donations from our wide range of donors.
