One in three children in Australia’s most disadvantaged communities start school developmentally vulnerable and they continue to fall behind throughout their school journey. Ardoch seeks to change this.
Our mission is that every child’s potential should be realised through full participation in education. This belief inspires us to increase engagement in education, build aspirations and enhance learning outcomes for children in disadvantaged communities.
“Joining Ardoch has been the best move I have made since retiring and I continue to enjoy volunteering.” (Ardoch volunteer)
