Charities we’re supporting in 2019

Raise Foundation is a charity that improves the wellbeing of youth in Australia, aged 13-24 years, who are at risk of disengagement, mental ill-health and isolation in schools and across the community. Raise does this by providing structured and evidence-based mentoring programs managed by qualified counsellors. Raise programs have created a sustainable difference for 2,438 young people, their families, their mentors and the communities they live in.

Learning Links works with children, their families and schools offering tailored programs and services to improve a child’s learning, wellbeing and participation to help them reach their full potential. These services range from literacy and numeracy support, speech and occupational therapy and psychology-based services.

Starlight’s mission is to brighten the lives of seriously ill children and their families. Since 1988 we’ve partnered with Australian health professionals to develop a range of programs based on principles of positive psychology that support the total care of our children and young people.

Our Livewire program supports teenagers living with a serious illness, chronic health condition or disability. It gives these young people the opportunity to connect with others, explore their creativity and build new skills, helping to build resilience, self-esteem and confidence.
