We help vulnerable young people whose addiction is hiding bigger social issues such as mental health issues and unemployment. Our programs work. Six months after completion, there are zero suicide attempts and 92% engaged in education and employment.

Safety, hope and opportunity for all vulnerable young Australians

Sir David Martin Foundation is a 30-year old Family Foundation, helping young people in crisis.
The Foundation is the major funder of Mission Australia's Triple Care Farm, a unique, holistic treatment centre which each year gives over 200 vulnerable young Australians, aged 16-24, a safe place to get well and prepare for new opportunities. Through philanthropy, we enable best practice models of treatment for youth drug and alcohol addiction.
