Tasmania

Save the Children's Tasmanian office has been helping children overseas since 1920, when Save the Children first began working in Europe.

Fundraising in Tasmania

In 2011, we decided there was much we could do for children in Tasmania, and we launched a series of state-based programs designed to support young people and children.

Our award-winning mentoring programs help young people who've come in contact with the juvenile justice system and our early learning programs support disadvantaged and newly-arrived refugee children and families. We also provide intensive one-on-one support to new mothers and fathers who have complex needs across Tasmania.

Find out more about our programs here.
