Advocacy is at the heart of what we do
It's not just our services that make a difference. We’ve been boldly campaigning for a just society for all Australians for over 200 years.
We helped pioneer maternal and infant health care, we advocated for legal aid and abolishing child labour and led the campaign to introduce Australia’s first age pension.
We’ll always speak up for an Australia where everyone can live their best life.
Campaigning for change
Fairness, justice and no one left behind. That’s why we raise our voice through advocacy campaigns. We campaign on issues affecting children, families and older Australians. Our focus is on creating real funding, policy and legislative change so all Australians live their best life.
