A valued part of The Smith Family


In addition to advocating on behalf of disadvantaged children and young people, every two years VIEW members vote on one or more issues of importance that will be the focus of advocacy and lobbying work for the coming years. These are called resolutions.

The VIEW National Resolution process is the voice of the organisation. Through this, members are able to collectively identify and articulate issues that are considered important for influencing social change in Australia. Many VIEW resolutions have been successful in fostering legislative changes for the betterment of Australian society.

Resolutions provide a platform to not only promote issues of importance, but also the work of VIEW Clubs and The Smith Family, in supporting the education of disadvantaged children and helping to break the cycle of disadvantage.

Resolutions focused in this way, and reflecting the aims of VIEW and The Smith Family, help to promote and raise awareness of VIEW among the public and communicate key VIEW messages to prospective members.
