Grace's Story

Fairest & Best

Grace Hendriks

Grace joined Fair Game in 2017 while studying Physiotherapy. Since early 2020 she has been working at the Hedland Health Campus in the Pilbara. Her love for working and living remotely started completing a week long immersion program in Punmu in Year 11, which then sparked her passion for working in Indigenous health and communities.

In her time with us, Grace has been on four regional trips throughout the Kimberley and Pilbara, visiting the communities of Roebourne, Pannawonica, Onslow, Newman, Jigalong, Halls Creek, Fitzroy, Billiuna and most recently Nullagine for the Martu Youth Festival.

This year Grace was the driving force behind setting up our Hedland Hub, a group of eight Fair Game volunteers who run weekly Game On! activities on Monday nights with the South Hedland Police. The sessions started with a handful of local kids, and now 30-40 consistently attend each week.

Grace was recongised with this award due to her commitment to the development of the Port Hedland hub, for being an inspirational leader and for her passion, hard work, commitment and infectious enthusiasm all of which resulted in positive impacts for our participants.
