About Sir David Martin Foundation
Sir David Martin Foundation is dedicated to helping young people in crisis. We fund programs to support young people suffering from problems such as addiction, homelessness, mental illness, disengagement from society, abuse, unemployment and family breakdown.
These programs assist young people in returning to education and training to find pathways to employment and a healthy, productive life. The Foundation’s major funding project is Triple Care Farm, an award winning residential rehabilitation program for youth (16-24yrs), located in rural NSW.
Abseil for Youth was set up in 2010 to fundraise specifically for Triple Care Farm. The experience of facing your fears and rising to the challenge is something that each young person goes through as they begin their journey to recovery through the Triple Care Farm program.
Our Vision is to create an environment where young people can grow up in safety, with hope and opportunity.
