Your support directly funds vital services

Our Art Union supporters play a significant role in funding our services. Because of the community's support, we are able to run services like:

  • Kids Helpline
  • Job training and employment for young people
  • Domestic & family violence services
  • Parent education
  • Specialist accommodation

Did you know? Every 69 seconds, a young person contacts Kids Helpline.

Your Prize Draw tickets help change the lives of real people

Following three years of disruption from the COVID-19 pandemic, fires and floods, the demand for our services only continues to increase.

Kids Helpline alone saw contacts from children and young people increase by 444,608 in the 2020-21 financial year.

It's because of your continuing support that we can make sure someone is there when a young person reaches out for help.


"It's a win-win for me! I am helping out a good cause and it gives me hope for a better future."

"I've never worked around a lot of people; I wasn't really talking to many people. Doing this program really built me up. It has been really good for me."
