Their mother died in tragic circumstances in January and as a result the father is in psychiatric care. The children have spent the last six months with their paternal grandparents, however they have had to move to their maternal grandparents as their paternal grandfather has been taken suddenly seriously ill. They have moved across with limited clothing so we are asking for your help to provide these children with a school uniform and basic clothing. - Anonymous teacher.

State Schools' Relief is different because:
- Every dollar you donate goes directly to Victorian State school children.
- No other Australian State or Territory has a similar Organisation.
- The only criterion is that the child is enrolled at a Victorian Government school. Every circumstance is different – there are a variety of situations where the child may need support such as poverty, neglect, homelessness, financial hardship, family violence, illness and the devastating effects of house fires and natural disasters.
- We don’t hand money to the parents – we provide practical assistance directly to the child through quality school clothing, generic uniforms, footwear, socks and underwear free of charge or by authorisation to purchase from their school shop or supplier on a co-payment basis.
We are always looking for new ideas and businesses we could partner with to provide more disadvantaged Victorian children opportunities to succeed in education.
