Taverners Australia is a national network of branches covering all states and territories of Australia. We support the deaf, blind, intellectually impaired, indigenous and young girls to play sport and in particular cricket.
We “give a sporting chance” by providing financial support directly to these groups to allow them to actively participate in cricket – generally at a grass roots level.
In late 2017 we developed a strategy to significantly increase our reach and support. At the same time The Taverners were appointed Cricket Australia’s lead Community partner. We have formed a Foundation – The Taverners Foundation, which allows donors of $2 or more to claim a tax deduction for that donation.
The Taverners is made up of hundreds of volunteers across Australia with the only expenditure being the cost of running events and branches. No salaries are paid.
