Mission Australia's integrated nationwide services help people find safe and affordable housing, support disadvantaged children and families, empower troubled young people, assist people with mental illness and disability, and much more. Early intervention and prevention is at the heart of our work.

Mission Australia has a long history of working with government at all levels, as both a service provider and influencer. The majority of services we deliver are government-funded, through a transparent tender process to secure contracts for a determined period. Other services rely on the generosity of our partners and tens of thousands of everyday Australians who give us their support.
