Our Story

The Graham Withers Charity Limited came about because Graham experienced firsthand working with people who faced difficulty learning. Graham himself struggled with his learning and concentration as a child and was often in trouble with his teachers. Later in life he realised this may have been due to a lack of awareness and understanding of learning disorders, which gave Graham the passion and drive to do more for the community. This passion gave birth to the Graham Withers Charity Limited.

 

Although Graham was never diagnosed with Dyslexia, he didn’t let the barriers to learning affect his motivation to succeed. Graham went on to become a three times Australian National Drag Racing Champion during the 60’s and 70’s. Graham developed one of the first SFI Spec. Harmonic Dampers and now at 78 years of age, with an on-going successful business spanning 30+ years, Graham would like to give back to the Australian community who have loved and supported him throughout his life. As there has been a rise in the number of children within our Australian communities living with learning disabilities, our three directors (Graham, Genevieve and Pauline) have come together to identify through community agencies families who are financially disadvantaged with children affected by Dyslexia and learning disabilities, that require financial support.
