Connie grew up and was raised in a loving and hardworking family, with her five brothers and seven sisters. She is now a proud mother to three amazing boys, who she lives here within Wyndham – since 2017.
Growing up, her father always told her “I have no inheritance to give you but education”. She took those words to heart and accomplished a lot, including getting a scholarship from Geneva, Switzerland, and completing studies in New Zealand - before eventually calling Australia home in 2000. Her strong passion for education and social justice led her to gain an 18-year career within both State and Federal Government.

Connie’s desire to make a difference in reducing social inequalities for the less privileged, and her love for community, led her to funding Comfort Care Foundation (CCF) in 2010, which then became her full-time focus as the Director in 2017. Her foundation works within the Wyndham community, where they are making amazing differences in people’s lives – working with disadvantaged groups such as the homeless, victims of domestic abuse, disadvantaged youth, and running support services for women, children, youth and men.
It is “Because we care” – Comfort Care Foundation.
Connie believes that “Justice begins next door”. The community has a tremendous resource in Connie Sivaly.
