Why Us?

Why you should donate to us: 

We’re Australia’s First Charity - Est in 1813:

You’ll be with Australia’s original charity –The leading voice in creating the Old Age Pension; the founder of the Royal Hospital for Women in Paddington (running it from 1901-1996); the organisation that helped families affected by the failed ABC Learning childcare centres; the charity that today empowers and educates thousands of people towards personal and societal change.

You’ll help families and kids thrive: 

From playgroups and parenting education to family support, counselling and household budgeting – you’ll fund programs to build strong family relationships. 

You’ll help Australians age with dignity:  

Your support will fund carers to help more older people live at home confidently and safely – delivering to the carers' needs as well as those of the person they are caring for.

You’ll fund learning and development:

By helping to provide training, coaching, mentoring and consultancy services to practitioners and organisations you’ll improve the wellbeing of children, young people, families and older Australians, especially in disadvantaged communities.
