Blackburne is a successful and growing business in Western Australia and we understand that as a prominent corporate citizen we have a concerted role to play in supporting charities that need real help to do important and life-changing work.
We strive to really make a difference to the lives of those less fortunate than ourselves.
Amongst the many charities we support, the Cambodian Children’s Fund and its associated Child Protection Unit is very close to our heart.
Founded in 2004, Cambodian Children’s Fund (CCF) provides life-changing education, nourishment and healing to vulnerable children from some of Cambodia’s most destitute communities. The fund currently cares for more than 2,000 students and 10,000 people annually and now extends its services to provide for entire families and communities in crisis.
CCF was founded by former film executive Scott Neeson, who travelled to Cambodia in early 2003 and found his life changed by the desperate circumstances and unlikely courage of Phnom Penh’s most impoverished children.
Paul Blackburne travels to Cambodia regularly to visit CCF and Blackburne’s CPU Project. After seeing what Scott Neeson was doing with CCF, he’s immediately understood the vital work that Scott and the CCF team were undertaking for desperate and impoverished children and their families.
Our commitment to the CCF continues today with regular fund-raising, contributions and hands on work to support the fund.

Blackburne also supports the associated Child Protection Unit (CPU), a joint initiative with the CCF and the Cambodian National Police which aims to bring child abusers to justice and protect those who cannot protect themselves.
