Since 2020, Region has been proudly partnering with The Smith Family – a national children’s education charity with a vision of a world where every child has the opportunity to change their future, no matter what their circumstances.
The Smith Family believes that education is one of the most powerful change agents. They work with children and young people to overcome educational inequality caused by poverty – so they can thrive now and into their futures.
Region is currently supporting the education of 128 students on Learning for Life, The Smith Family’s core program. It provides almost 60,000 young Australians in need with long-term educational support in three ways.
- Each child on the program receives:
- Financial support for school essentials, like uniforms and books.
- Personal support for the child and their family, to help children stay motivated at school, complete their education and go on to further training or work.
- Practical support through their extra learning and mentoring programs – tailored to each child’s needs.
This proven combination of financial, personal and practical support empowers young people to harness education and build skills to unlock their true potential.
As part of our commitment to corporate social responsibility, we are absolutely delighted to continue this partnership into the future.
