CREATE a better life for children and young people in care

Kids in care need our help

More than 46,000 children and young people are in the care system in Australia. Many kids in care will grow up in a series of different foster homes and care placements. Different placements, separation from siblings and social isolation can have lasting impacts for young people.

CREATE Foundation is dedicated to improving the lives of kids in care through our connection events, life skills programs, and amplifying of young people’s voices to improve the care system across Australia.

Your donations can help children and young people:

  • CONNECT with one another through CREATE events and clubCREATE
  • feel EMPOWERED through building confidence and self-esteem in CREATE programs like Speak Up which help young people to have a voice and be heard
  • CHANGE the care system in Australia through Youth Advisory Groups, consultations and informing CREATE’s systemic advocacy priorities.
