Since 2006, First National Foundation embodies the philanthropic efforts of over 300 First National offices to provide financial support to charities nationally. As a registered, not for profit, Independent Corporation, the First National Foundation engages in fundraising to support local and wider communities, not to profit from them. 

Kids Helpline is Australia’s only free, private and confidential 24/7 phone and online counselling service for young people aged 5 to 25. 

We are delighted to have them as the FN Foundation major sponsorship of 2020!
For 27 years Australia’s kids and young people have been turning to our professional, specialised counsellors, no matter who they are, where they live or what they want to talk about. Over this time, Kids Helpline has responded to over 8 million contacts. For some young people, connecting with Kids Helpline has been a life-saving experience, while for others it’s about practical help and emotional support at the critical moment they need someone to listen. A lot has changed in 27 years. Our communities have changed, the issues kids face have changed, and the ways our counsellors engage with and help young people have changed. What hasn’t changed is that Helplines make a difference to the emotional wellbeing and lives of our kids every single day — ensuring young people know they are not alone.
