The Smith Family is an independent children's charity helping Australian children experiencing disadvantage to get the most out of their education, so they can create better futures for themselves.
The Smith Family steps into a disadvantaged child’s life while they are still at school, to help them get the most from their time there. By supporting a child to participate in education, The Smith Family prevents them experiencing a lifetime of poverty.
Established in 1922, today our work reaches more than 127,000 disadvantaged children and families in 94 communities across Australia.
By investing in a child’s education, we can break a cycle of disadvantage.
