Save the Children was first established in Tasmania more than 95 years ago to help children affected by World War I.

While we've been helping vulnerable children overseas since 1920, our first programs to improve the lives of Tasmania's children started in 2011. Our award winning mentoring programs help young people who've come in contact with the juvenile justice system and our early learning programs support disadvantaged and newly arrived refugee children and families. Additionally, we provide intensive one-on-one support to mothers and fathers across Tasmania through our Integrated Family Support Service and Volunteer Family Connect Program.

We work hard to achieve innovative outcomes for the children of Tasmania, a great demonstration of our approach was a Social Return on Investment Report into our youth justice programs, produced in partnership with financial services firm Ernst and Young. The report found that for each $1 invested, $3.50 of benefit was generated for the community.
