Our Mission / Objective

As the major philanthropic partner of Mission Australia, we’ve raised over $65M since 1990. This partnership has enabled a best practice model of treatment for young people with drug and alcohol addiction. 

Our Services

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.

Our Beneficiaries

Young people aged 16 to 24 with drug and alcohol addiction

Projects in Progress

1. Triple Care Farm in Robertson offers an intensive program for youth who are homeless, drug and alcohol dependencies & mental health issues; providing accommodation, care and counselling. Students are taught work and living skills leading to a higher self-esteem and independence.

2. David Martin Place – a new youth Detox Centre, the first of its kind in Australia, built on the same site as Triple Care Farm, to treat young people in a safe, controlled and age appropriate facility.  

The centre is a 10 bed, 28 day residential program incorporating assessment, treatment, counselling and aftercare support to equip the young person with the tools to stay clean. It will combine a medical and therapeutic approach, leading to effective and more positive and sustained outcomes for young people trying to detox.

Workplace fundraising and events

Host a fundraising event or activity in your workplace and raise funds and awareness for young people in crisis. You can host a morning tea, casual dress day, BBQ lunch, Friday social, an auction or raffle. We have resources to help you so don’t hesitate to contact us.

Event partnerships

Abseil for Youth is Sir David Martin Foundation’s annual fundraiser. Each year hundreds of brave people face their fears to abseil down a Sydney CBD Skyscraper to help raise much needed funds for youth in crisis. Support this incredible event by becoming a valued Event Partner.

 

Please contact Cath Isted on (02) 9219 2039 or email us, if you would like to find out more.

Volunteer with us

Can you lend your time to help Sir David Martin Foundation?

We always need help from volunteers to run our fundraising events, such as the Abseil for Youth.

Please note that due to legal requirements surrounding working with children, sometimes it is difficult to arrange volunteering at our youth programs. However, for groups that wish to do a ‘volunteering day’, we may be able to organise a working bee day at Triple Care Farm in Robertson. If you’re an individual and would like to assist us at head office, please get in touch.
