Lord Mayor's Charitable Foundation is committed to reducing place-based education and economic inequality.
Despite almost three decades of uninterrupted economic growth, Greater Melbourne has pockets of entrenched socio-economic disadvantage. Where you live affects your education and job opportunities.
There is great need to further develop our education and training systems to meet the changing nature of work and the influence of globalisation, technology and climate change.
We support project and policy responses that empower our most disadvantaged communities to increase work readiness and economic inclusion.
The Foundation is working towards achieving the following outcomes (click each one to learn more):
