Each year we help thousands of people create better futures

In 2021-22 we supported 15,129 people

We equipped people with the skills and resources they needed

  • 98% of parents reported their child was ready for school thanks to HIPPY, an early learning and parenting program designed to prepare children for school
  • 97% of parents were satisfied with the service they received through ParentsNext, a program that helps support them with their education and employment goals

We helped them increase their safety
