The Smith Family is a national, independent children’s charity established in 1922 and working in 94 communities throughout Australia.In the last year our work reached more than 134,000 disadvantaged children and families in 94 communities across Australia.
The Smith Family steps into a disadvantaged child’s life while they are still at school, to help them get the most from their time there. The Smith Family provides the child with tools and support they need to thrive at school. This help extends to the child’s family and community, delivering the wrap-around support essential to breaking the cycle.
Helping a child to do well in their journey through school brings a life time reward, for them and their family. Investing in a child’s education today will have a long-term impact that empowers them into their working life. By investing in a child’s education, we can break a cycle of disadvantage.
