Friends

Our Friends

Girls on Fire gratefully acknowledge the contribution of the following organisations and individuals. 

Girls on Fire network partners

Australasian Fire Authorities Council (AFAC) – the guiding principles of this leading organisation inform Girls on Fire programs, curriculum and decisions.

Women in Firefighting Australasia (WAFA) and Australasian Women in Emergencies (AWE)– as peak bodies supporting women in firefighting and emergencies, Girls on Fire benefits enormously from the example and expertise of both WAFA & AWE.

YMCA – YMCA NSW is a proud venue partner of Girls on Fire. Hosting our Hawksbury camp at YMCA Camp Yarramundi has greatly enhanced the program due to its location and facilities.

Our training and education partners

NSW Department of Education (DET) and Regional Industry Education Partnerships (RIEP)

What began as a pilot test in 2021 to help increase the visibility of fire and emergency services with school leavers in a virtual format is now being expanded throughout NSW. 

This partnership model has now been expanded to include relationships with the education and training sectors. 

RIEP have arranged for a one day schools workshop to be rolled out throughout NSW over the next four months. For dates and information, please head to our Schools Program page. 

Financial supporters

Previous fire camp sponsor and financial partner Firefighters Mutual Bank. 

Westfields Hero Grant and their support in 2020 with the Virtually Possible program. 

Groundwork partners

Girls on Fire would not have been possible without the support and encouragement of the following Groundwork Partners in the initial stages of our development: 

Churchill Fellowship

The original Girls on Fire mission began with the generous support of the Churchill Trust in 2015. As such, their belief in our ability to increase female participation in the Australian firefighting service through understanding models from around the world will always hold a dear place in the history and future of Girls on Fire. 

Check out the original research to promote and increase numbers of women and ethnically diverse people in Australian Fire Agencies.
