About the Paul Ramsay Foundation
Paul Ramsay was a visionary business leader who left Australia a remarkable legacy. Through his generous bequest, the Paul Ramsay Foundation continues his philanthropic legacy through a shared commitment to help break cycles of disadvantage in Australia. One of the Foundation’s focus areas includes breaking cycles of disadvantage by aiming, where possible, to reduce contact with the criminal justice system, particularly through prevention and diversion measures.
Our talented team bring to this challenge their diverse perspectives and experience. We are anthropologists and educators, lawyers and economists, epidemiologists and entrepreneurs, political scientists and historians, psychologists and business analysts, journalists and administrators, philosophers and artists – all guided by our values of respect for people, curiosity, loyalty, courage and innovation. Diversity & inclusion, wellness, culture and learning are all important to us.
