Fund Spotlight: Family Life Foundation

Family Life Foundation is a community service organisation working with disadvantaged children, families and communities across the southern Melbourne region. The organisation, which has been serving communities for close to 50 years, develops and delivers programs to respond to current and emerging issues in society. In 2010, Family Life established the Futures For Children Fund to support its ongoing programs and activities.

Programs include supporting vulnerable parents to build strong attachments with their infants, re-engaging adolescents in continuing their education, helping families whose children are instigating violence in the home, educating older women about financial independence, teaching people about family violence and supporting children and parents who are accessing family violence and family law support services.

Family Life uses an evidence-informed, outcome-based approach and has a reputation for innovation and knowledge sharing. It has contributed to major policy and practice change in the areas of child wellbeing, family violence prevention and response, and social enterprise innovation.

Through its NFP Future Fund at Australian Communities Foundation, Family Life is building an endowment to secure a long future of serving the community.

In 2016, 2018 and 2019, Family Life was recognised in the top ten not-for-profits nationwide, measuring the Innovation Performance in the sector. It also received a gold award in the 2018 Australian Crime and Violence Prevention Awards.
