About the organisation

Organisation Name : Foundations Forum

Foundations Forum is a small Sydney-based voluntary organisation formed by a group of individuals committed to improving the lives of people who are marginalised in society. From its beginnings as a network in 1985, Foundations Forum was incorporated in NSW in 1991.

  • is based on a proven theory: Social Role Valorisation (SRV)*
  • uses personal stories to illustrate the potency of SRV
  • is interactive and draws on the experiences of participants
  • offers practical strategies and safeguards
  • provides authentic SRV education.

Foundations Forum receives no funding and relies solely on membership and workshop fees to continue its work.

*Social Role Valorisation (SRV): the pursuit of the good things in life, via the pursuit of valued social roles for people with a devalued status.
