Why raise funds?
It is a tragic fact that in Sydney children and young people are being neglected and abused. Domestic Violence, Mental Health and Drug and Alcohol abuse are some of the challenges our young people deal with. When parents are unable or unwilling to care for their children and teenagers the community must step in and support them instead.
Every child and young person deserves access to education, health care, clothing, housing and beyond the basics: birthday presents, tutoring, personal effects, swimming lessons, participation in sports teams and some of what we may have enjoyed while growing up.
We want to continue to change the lives of hundreds of children and young people in need through the generous donations from our supporters and partners in addition to receiving core funding from the Government.
We have supported more than 3140 young people. 95% of our young people are engaged in education or employment. 80% of our young people leave the system and live independently.
Young lives, lived to their FULL POTENTIAL.
