Congratulations to the four organisations who pitched; One Voice, Dandelion Support Network, Fair Game and LifeCircle. This invitation-only AMP event, hosted by the AMP Foundation, featured the organisations who were too big for AMP's Tomorrow Fund individual grants program, but just right for TFN.
Collectively, the audience gave $94,194 to support these important social organisations. Match funding was provided up to $10,000 per project by The AMP Foundation.
One Voice provides facilities, accommodation and support for young homeless people in Australia. They run a mobile shower service to give young homeless people a safe place to maintain their personal hygiene, to access referral services and to receive essential products and clothes. www.onevoice.org.au/

They provide essential items for babies and children under 12 to families in need as identified by social workers.
