With more than 300 clubs around Australia involving some 17,000 women from all walks of life, the collective voice of VIEW is an important aspect of the organsation's work.
Through their networks in local communities, VIEW members help to spread the message about disadvantage in Australia and the importance of long-term education support in helping a child break the cycle of disadvantage.
The extensive reach of VIEW also helps to build the profile of The Smith Family in areas where the organisation may not have a presence. This is vital in increasing support for the work of The Smith Family and helping to raise funds.
The Smith Family’s Learning for Life program provides emotional, practical and financial support to help disadvantaged children and young people with their education. The support starts in the early years of learning development and continues through primary and high school. Its programs help build skills, knowledge, motivation, self-belief and a network of positive relationships with parents, peers and significant others.
Clyde River Day VIEW Club welcomes interested women and visitors to join them at the first meeting of 2017 which will be held at the Catalina Country Club on Monday, January 23.
