The aim and purpose of the Wayne Weaver Foundation are to support bereaved First Nations (Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander) prisoners, their families and communities. The Foundation supports the cost of funerals, transport, coffins, and gravestones. It also provides post-release community support for prisoners and their families.
Unresolved grief is a killer. The Wayne Weaver Foundation is focussed on protecting and conserving the social and cultural bonds and traditions of First Nations peoples, their families and communities by providing the support, resources and follow up necessary to attend funerals held in the community, outside correctional facilities.
