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 as we pursue our vision of an Australia where all of us have a safe home and can thrive.

We are dedicated to serving people and communities in need in line with our values of compassion, respect, integrity, perseverance and celebration.

We’re committed to keeping children and young people safe, and to a ‘Speak Up & Speak Out’ culture reflecting the highest standards of legal, ethical and moral behaviour.

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.

Need help?

Independence is something we all strive for, but life rarely turns out as planned. Don't be afraid to reach out for help.
