Who We Are

United Way Australia is proud to be one of nearly 1800 United Ways in 41 countries and territories around the world.

Globally, United Way has been improving lives and strengthening communities for more than 125 years. We are supported by 70,000 companies, including more than
280 Fortune 500 corporations, because we have a proven track record of positive impact and continuous innovation.

Our Approach

We believe that the postcode people are born in should not determine their destiny.

Recognising that the causes of entrenched community disadvantage in Australia are complex, with no single organisation being able to solve these issues alone our approach is to unite community, business, philanthropy, government, and social purpose organisations to improve education and employment outcomes in communities of disadvantage.

What we do

We work with more than 100 community and corporate partners to help Australians in communities of disadvantage to reach their full potential.

Our model of change is to empower children and young people through flagship early childhood and youth employment initiatives. We also work to challenge the status quo in tackling complex social issues, including our innovative business park model and collective impact work.
