Established in 2011, the Foundation was set up by the friends and family of Luke Adams (a prominent WAFL player for Swan Districts Football Club).Luke suffered life threatening head injuries during a night out in Perth. Luke’s story is just one example of the impact of senseless violence and antisocial behaviour in the community.
The IF Foundation operates on the premise that community violence is preventable and tackling the issue is the responsibility of the whole community. The foundation’s strategies are strongly guided by the recently released framework developed by ICCWA and North Metropolitan Public Health Unit “Towards a Future Without Violence”
