Our Impact

United Way Our Impact Bnr

Every child deserves a chance to succeed, regardless of their location

We aim to empower 40,000 Australian children over five years, promoting reading, learning, and success. Through collaboration and community unity, we advocate for systemic change in child and youth outcomes. We sincerely appreciate the support from diverse sectors, including government, business, philanthropy, and nonprofits. Together, we amplify our impact.

Impact of the Imagination Library

Many Australian children face developmental vulnerability at the start of school, lacking essential literacy skills. Dolly Parton’s Imagination Library empowers these children, recognising the importance of the first 2,000 days for brain development. By providing a book each month, we enable children to explore, learn, and transform their futures, significantly impacting their trajectory before school.
