The Smith Family - Helping disadvantaged children

The Smith Family is a children's charity helping disadvantaged Australian children to get the most out of their education, so they can create better futures for themselves. Help break the cycle of disadvantage.


More than 638,000 Australian children are living in jobless families today. These young Australians need your support to participate fully in their education and break the cycle of disadvantage.

You don't have to live in one of the 94 communities we work in to show you care.

From volunteering in one of our retail stores to holding your own fundraising event or running the famous City2Surf to raise money for us, there are lots of ways to get involved.

Join the thousands of caring Australians who are passionate about helping disadvantaged children create a better future for themselves through education.
