In 2015 the Netball Foundation assisted every state and territory was assisted in some capacity through a key project, the Confident Girls campaign.
The Netball Foundation is a non-profit program of Netball Australia – run in partnership with the Australian Sports Foundation – to help women and girls achieve their full potential on and off the netball court.
“In 2016 we plan to expand our reach and programs and will engage with a research partner to measure our social impact given sport is such an important tool in gender equality and women’s empowerment,” Netball Foundation chair Noeleen Dix said.

The Foundation’s other key campaign is Diamonds Circle, which aims to raise funds to invest in the Australian Diamonds pathway by expanding the Wellbeing Program in key support areas, such as mental health, lifestyle management, advanced rehabilitation practices, transition into retirement and in hardship.
Last October, ahead of the Constellation Cup Test between Australia and New Zealand in Perth, Diamonds coach Lisa Alexander and captain Laura Geitz hosted an exclusive luncheon to celebrate the Female Sport Champions of Change.
Senator Michaelia Cash, Federal Minister for Women, was a special guest and spoke about the impact netball has in the community and how important the Diamonds are as role models.
