Education and Development Fund Program

Providing financial assistance towards education and extra-curricular development expenses,
for children and young people via donated funds

Our Education and Development Fund was developed to assist grandparent and kinship carers who receive minimal financial support to provide the children in their care with the resources to enhance their schooling and the opportunity to develop physically, emotionally and culturally through extra-curricular activity alongside their peers.

No child should be unfairly disadvantaged through circumstance and every child should be given the opportunity to participate.

Limited funding amounts are available for education and extra-curricular development pursuits for the children and young people in the care of extended family through the generosity of various grants and benefactors.
