Frequently asked questions

Can you come and visit our school for a presentation?

Unfortunately StreetSmart is a small (and busy!)  team and so we are unable to make in person visits at this time.

Where can I learn more about Homelessness?

If you’re an educator looking to engage students, check out our curriculum aligned and ready to teach primary classroom activities.

If you’re a knowledge seeker keen to build your understanding of homelessness in Australia – check out our library of current news and reports or visit our About Homelessness page.

Where will our donation go?

Funds raised will create real change in the lives of people expressing or at risk of homelessness. We will distribute donations to grassroots frontline homelessness services in the region where funds were raised.


This is our model of local led impact to create the biggest change for our most vulnerable community members. Read more about our grant making here.

Can we raise funds online?

Yes! We encourage schools and students to get creative with their fundraising and advocacy. If you’re unsure where to start with online fundraising – we suggest MyCause, and have created a guide to setting up your profile here.

How can you help us with our fundraiser?

We have developed a number of helpful and engaging resources to help you create an awesome experience for your school community. This includes, Fast Facts, Posters, and classroom or assembly presentations. Check them out here.

Who are StreetSmart Australia?

We are a Registered Charity operating across Australia to raise funds and awareness for grassroots homelessness services. We have been mobilising communities to make real change for people at risk of or experiencing homelessness for the past 20 years and have distributed over $10.6 million to fund life saving and life changing programs. Read more on our About Us page.

For every $1 we raise and distribute, $3.80 is created in social value. Read our latest Impact Report here.
