Safety, hope and opportunity for all vulnerable young Australians

Sir David Martin Foundation is a family foundation, helping young people in crisis.
We’ve raised over $70M since 1990 to enable best-practice models of treatment for youth drug and alcohol addiction. The Foundation is the major funder of Mission Australia’s Triple Care Farm, a unique youth-specific addiction treatment centre which gives Australians, aged 16-24, a safe place to get well and prepare for new opportunities.
