and is the Administration Centre of the Ministry.
The Foundation was established in 1990 in loving memory of John Victor Richardson, a Limbless soldier from the First World War, and his wife Sarah Ann Richardson, Early Pioneer Settlers of Swan Reach, Vic.

It is also with sad regret, we advise the passing of our founding Foundation President, Sarah and Johns' son, Ian Richardson, due to Cancer in 2009.
We also acknowledge the steady support Ian's brother Bill Richardson provided, as Vice president too, who resigned in 2009 for personal reasons, and has passed away in 2011.
