VIEW Clubs of Australia

VIEW stands for the Voice, Interests and Education of Women.

VIEW is a leading women's national volunteer organisation, providing the opportunity for women from all walks of life to meet regularly, establish lasting friendships and help disadvantaged Australian children through supporting the work of children’s charity, The Smith Family. Driven by the mission of creating social change in Australian communities, VIEW empowers women to have their voices on issues of importance for the future wellbeing of Australian society.

There are more than 300 VIEW Clubs around Australia open to women of all ages. VIEW offers a friendship network, providing fun and a sense of purpose for members through supporting the education of disadvantaged Australian children.

As a valued part of The Smith Family, VIEW members help to change the lives of young Australians in need through fundraising, volunteering, advocating and sponsoring disadvantaged students on The Smith Family's Learning for Life program. Together VIEW Clubs sponsor more than 1,100 disadvantaged students through the Learning for Life program.
