As we draw nearer to Christmas, on behalf of myself and all of my colleagues here at Concern Australia, I wanted to take a moment to express my heartfelt gratitude to our cherished supporters and partners, for the support you have given us this year.
This Christmas, you have the power to spark transformative change in the lives of young people facing hardship and complex challenges. At Concern Australia, our mission is to work in partnership with young people and children, creating opportunities for them to enjoy full and meaningful lives.
At Concern Australia the lead up to Christmas is a time to pause and reflect on some of the young people we serve, knowing how overwhelmingly taxing 2021 has been for many of them, particularly those who are experiencing homelessness and who’s Christmas wish is simply a place to sleep that’s safe and warm.
As we approach the end of the 2020-21 financial year, invest in the next 50 years of providing hope and care to vulnerable young people such as Kacey and secure the benefits of a tax deductible donation.

Paige has had a challenging life journey. She was born in prison, has spent most of her life in state care, and she has lived through abuse, disadvantage and substance use. But with the right support, this inspiring young woman is overcoming the hurdles life has presented her with.
