About The Smith Family
The Smith Family is an independent children’s charity helping disadvantaged Australian children to get the most out of their education, so they can create better futures for themselves.
One in six Australian children and young people are growing up in poverty1, where even the bare necessities are hard to come by. In a family where there is no regular income, money goes on food, rent, and bills. Finding money for a school uniform, proper shoes, textbooks or the next school excursion is often impossible.
On average, children growing up in disadvantaged homes are two to three years behind their more advantaged peers.
The impacts of poverty are severe and far reaching. When they start school, many children in disadvantaged families are behind in basic reading and math skills, lacking the essentials they need to fully participate in their education. Without the skills they need to keep up in class, these students can fall even further behind, making it more difficult for them to stay engaged and motivated at school.
Without early intervention, these children can fall so far behind it is almost impossible to catch up.
