Empowering Melbourne’s children and young people so they can thrive since 1883
Since 1883, Sparkways has been supporting children, young people, and families all across Victoria.
We are a social enterprise working alongside our communities to ensure every child and young person is given every opportunity to reach their full potential.
We’re here to be the spark of change. To help light the way for a lifelong journey of accomplishment and achievement.
We partner with children and young people who find themselves facing challenges to inclusion and participation. By intervening in these key times, we can help facilitate a journey of engagement, contribution, and accomplishment for them and their communities.
At Sparkways, we are committed to fostering the innate talents, confidence and potential in every child and young person we work with.
In all our work, we take a collaborative and evidence-based approach that allows us to ensure that our programs are always delivering long-lasting and meaningful outcomes.
The Sparkways approach is to always collaborate. We work together with communities to discover and design the best possible solution for their unique needs and challenges.
Our reputation is built on being a partner you can trust. We’re committed to making a lasting difference for the individual and communities we serve, something that is only possible through the collaboration and support from our partners.
In the tradition of our founder W. M. Forster, we believe in generating positive, meaningful social change through new and innovative ways of doing things. We are passionate about delivering real outcomes that improve our community.
