The South Sydney Rabbitohs have always had a strong link to Australia's Indigenous communities - and that bond is set to deepen thanks to a new mentoring program.
Souths Cares, the Bunnies' mentoring program established in 2006, has received a $208,000 federal government grant to expand its youth, school and community programs in South West Sydney.
Minister for Indigenous Health Ken Wyatt said the program was a legacy for future generations.
"All of us as adults can still remember players who had an impact on us because they either took a moment to sign an autograph or to just give us some great advice and that’s what this program is about," he told SBS News.
Indigenous Health Minister Ken Wyatt said the program is a legacy for future generations.
"I compliment the Rabbitohs on what they do at Souths Cares, because in 20, 30 years’ time, one of those children will look back and say your comments to me made a difference to my life and I want to thank you for that."
