RISE – Claymore

Sydney Women's Fund, Sydney Youth Charity, Be Kind Sydney, Sydney Community Foundation, Whitelion,

Now in it’s fifth year, RISE – Re-engagement Initiative towards Supportive Education, is changing lives for young people in the Claymore community and strengthening families. Alternative learning and wraparound support with family outreach is given to high school students suspended, expelled or chronically disengaged from school.

Coming from families of intergenerational welfare dependency, these young poeple face overwhelming disadvantage and are at risk of contact with the juvenile justice system. Emerging as a community pilot in 2015 RISE, codesigned by SCF and Whitelion, has become a model of success for Sydney’s young people.

Junior RISE – Narellan

Sydney Women's Fund, Sydney Youth Charity, Be Kind Sydney, Sydney Community Foundation, Save The Children

Junior RISE co-designed by Save the Children and Sydney Community Foundation helps primary school children navigate, re-engage and thrive in education despite high risk factors and setbacks in their learning.

The number of school referrals and suspensions in primary school children has increased over the past five years. In 2016, NSW saw 7,540 K-6 children suspended.

Though widely used, evidence shows suspension is not improving kids behaviour. Children experiencing socio-economic disadvantage and cultural isolation have increased likelihood of suspension.

Funding Target
$55,000

A Gift of Just
$1,000 will allow a child to discover their strengths with an individual learning plan
