Sir David Martin Foundation (SDMF) is a charity dedicated to helping young people in crisis. SDMF fund programmes in New South Wales to support young people suffering from problems such as substance addiction, homelessness, mental illness, disengagement from society, abuse, unemployment and family breakdown. SDMF programmes provide treatment and support for these issues, as well as assist young people in returning to education and training to find pathways to employment and a healthy, productive life. The charity’s vision is to create an environment where young people can grow up in safety, with hope and opportunity.
Through three youth services - Triple Care Farm, Creative Youth Initiative and South West Youth Services - young people are helped to get back on their feet.
