The Smith Family

In Australia today more than 605,000 children* are living in jobless families. For these children, the effects of their family’s financial disadvantage go beyond the pressures of not having enough money for the basics; it can prevent them from accessing the same educational and life opportunities as their peers. The Smith Family believes that every child deserves a chance no matter their circumstances and the national children’s charity works with young Australians in need helping them to create better futures for themselves, by supporting their participation in education.
