South West Connect (SWC) was established in 2005 as Fairfield Business Education Partnership Inc.(FBEP) in order to provide services to the Fairfield area under the Federal Department of Education, Science and Training’s Careers Advice Australia’s suite of programs. In 2010 the name was changed to South West Connect in order to better reflect the new region of Fairfield and Liverpool. SWC has successfully fulfilled many Local, State and Federal Government contracts which required SWC to adhere to strict reporting and performance outcomes. Recent contracts included the Commonwealth Communities for Children and Partnership Brokers Program, NSW Government Structured Workplacement Program and specific projects funded under the NSW ClubGRANTS program. Over the past decade, SWC has created strong working relationships with local businesses, community organisations and schools to assists approximately 8,000 young people annually to access employment, education, training and recreational opportunities so they can become economic, social and civic contributors in their community.
Connecting Youth to Business and Community
Over the past decade, SWC has established strong and trusted relationships with thousands of stakeholders.
