Indigenous Plumbing and Sanitation Foundation setting goals for remote communities

A new not-for-profit organisation, the Indigenous Plumbing and Sanitation Foundation (IPSF), is aiming to get more youth from remote Indigenous communities into plumbing apprenticeships, as well as offer assistance by providing funds to improve sanitation standards and the water supply to outstations and small remote Indigenous communities.

The foundation was launched by Indigenous advocate and former AFL player Michael Long, in response to remote Indigenous communities facing acute challenges in maintaining access to basic human needs due to a lack of skilled tradespeople.

'As a Board Member, I’m committed to building productive partnerships with the community, business and government sectors to help raise funds for worthy projects,' Long said. 'Plumbing is on the front-line in the defence against disease and this is where the IPSF has an important role to play.'
