Sir David Martin Foundation

Sir David Martin Foundation (SDMF) is a non-profit organisation created in 1990 by the late Governor of NSW, who had a dream of "safety, hope and opportunity for all young Australians".

SDMF is dedicated to helping young people in crisis. We fund effective programs to support young people struggling with issues such as substance addiction, homelessness, mental illness, disengagement from society, abuse, unemployment and family breakdown. These programs provide treatment and support, as well as assist young people in returning to education and training to find pathways to employment and a healthy, productive life.
