We help vulnerable young people in crisis whose addiction is hiding bigger social issues such as mental illness, homelessness, childhood trauma and unemployment. Our programs are highly successful, with zero lives lost and 83% of our young people engaged in education and employment six months after their program completion.

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.
