Reaching more young Australians in need
Innovating to Create Lasting Change
The Smith Family provides long-term educational support for disadvantaged Australian children and young people. Our support starts in a child’s early years, working with their family and community to prepare them for school.
When a child is at school, we make sure they have the resources and support they need to attend regularly, engage in learning and be motivated to stay at school until they complete Year 12. At the same time, we support parents by giving them the skills and confidence to encourage learning at home and to engage positively in their child’s education.
Because we measure and track the outcomes of our work, we know our long-term, targeted approach is helping disadvantaged students to build better futures for themselves.
By improving their educational outcomes, our work is having a lasting impact on young Australians in need.
Together with our supporters, we have helped more disadvantaged children to break the cycle of disadvantage.
Our Annual Report provides a comprehensive summary of our progress during 2017–2018 towards achieving our ambition to ensure the effectiveness of our programs, and significantly increase our reach to improve educational outcomes for more children in need.
