Fair Go Australia (FGA) commenced in 2009 as a Not For Profit organisation with an aim of assisting at-risk and disadvantaged youth to be provided with similar life opportunities as those available to the wider community. The charitable foundation was established with an intention to work cooperatively within Australian communities in need to provide support and assistance through the generosity of time and effort provided by volunteers.
VMR Bribie Island is a volunteer organisation dedicated to:
– promoting, fostering and supporting boating safety amongst members, and the boating public generally, by arranging training and education programs
– providing a rescue service, a rescue base and such equipment deemed necessary for the operation of the rescue service and the Association generally.
The Unit was born out of the Bribie Island Boating and Fishing Club, which in 1970 assumed responsibility for assisting mariners in distress. It became Bribie Island Air Sea Rescue in 1982 and changed its name to VMR Bribie Island Inc. in March 1997.
