Pitch Night 1 Finalists

Congratulations to our INNOV8 Pitch Night finalists who successfully pitched for funding at our inaugural event, where over $160,000 was distributed to these . You can view their pitches in the video section.

Pius X Aboriginal Corporation - $47,000
Since 1965 Pius X has been a provider of Primary Health Services to the Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander community in North West NSW. Given that Aboriginal mothers generally seek antenatal care late and attend fewer antenatal sessions, Pius X seeks to create an innovative program that will encourage engagement of expectant mothers with antenatal care and education.
Orange Sky Australia - $38,600
Orange Sky is the world's first free mobile laundry service for people experiencing homelessness. Our mission is to positively connect communities, restore respect and a sense of dignity, raise health standards and ultimately help transition people out of homelessness.It takes an hour to wash and dry someone's clothes. During that time, we offer a conversation. Many people we speak to have had no human contact for days. Once trust is built, we can refer to health services, offer casual employment, again to help restore respect, self-confidence and sense of self-worth.
Hunter Rehabilitation and Health - $28,200
Hunter Rehabilitation and Health help people get back to doing what they love by implementing specific and individualised exercise programs to better their health and change their lives. We have collaborated with John Hunter Children's Hospital and Cystic Fibrosis NSW to implement a regular exercise program for CF children. We have achieved life changing results so far and if the results of this study show a significant improvement in CF disease status, it could change the way care is delivered.
Upper Hunter wheres there's a Will - $48,600
Our objective is to address the significant mental health issues facing youth in the Upper Hunter. We believe that in order for us to improve mental health and reduce suicide rates, we MUST take a whole community approach. Our Visible Wellbeing project combines the science of wellbeing with the science of learning and teaching to make wellbeing visible in all classes and across co-curricula. Techniques help the teacher to use the learning process itself as a delivery mechanism to build student wellbeing.
