Welcome to The Rioli Fund for Aboriginal Health

The Rioli Fund for Aboriginal Health has been established in conjunction with the Menzies School of Health Research to raise support for research into issues that impact upon the health and well-being of Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander Australians.

Mr Dean Rioli, founder and chair of the fund knows all to well the health issues faced by Indigenous Australians and with the help of the team of expert researchers at Menzies, he is striving to make a difference to the lives of Indigenous Australians and achieve his dream of a healthier tomorrow.

The Rioli Fund for Aboriginal Health has been established, in conjunction with the Menzies School of Health Research, to raise support for research into issues that impact upon the health and well-being of Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander Australians.

The priority areas for the fund are:

  • Indigenous Child Health
  • Indigenous Healing and Resilience.

The Rioli Fund for Aboriginal Health is already working with a number of individuals, businesses and organisations to help raise much needed funds to address these issues, many of which have been put into the “too hard basket” for far too long, and to take steps to make a real difference in improving the lives of Indigenous Australians.

He also enjoyed kicking the football with his family and friends on this beautiful island – a place where that lethal left foot developed, helping him to kick many goals for his AFL club Essendon, cementing his presence as a significant player on Essendon’s senior list for a number of years.
