For almost 20 years, DineSmart has brought together restaurants and their diners to raise money for local homeless charities. These donations stay local and help fund a range of different homeless projects that are providing vital services for vulnerable people.

You can join us and take action against homelessness by dining out & donating at your local DineSmart restaurant, or you can simply donate online via the button below.

What your support means


We fund social enterprises, where people at risk of homelessness are being trained and gain life skills, while cooking meals for others in their local community.

We help provide material aid for women and children’s refuges, including bedding, hygiene products, children’s toys & clothes and more.

We fund youth programs to provide legal advice, job training, or mental health support for young people experiencing hardship.

"For the past 4 years it has been a privilege to be part of the DineSmart program, helping raise much needed funds that will help the ones in need. The opportunity that DineSmart provides to all of us to help raise awareness and work with our communities to help others has proved to be more than successful by obtaining the highest percentage of engagement and donations.”

“We love being part of DineSmart. It's a great concept that assists small, grassroots charities. It's simple to administer and all our customers are very supportive as it gives them an opportunity to contribute, that they may not of otherwise had.”

“DineSmart is an opportunity to raise funds and awareness. When most of the press around homelessness is focused on the lack of funding, while people are really suffering - it is great to be able to positively engage - and take practical action.”

“Through DineSmart we have helped to fund some fantastic local organisations that are literally a stone's throw from our restaurant. It's really great to be able to tell our customers exactly where the money goes, that it benfits local people.”
