Thank you for your support this year.

Watch All about Young A21 and read about YA21 events -Two youth roundtables on Refugee and Asylum Seeker Policy and Two “Smarter about Drugs” events in Adelaide.

This is only a taste –  there is much much more so click on the cover or the title (above) to download the full report, and feel free to distribute it to interested friends. Read on to see what else we have been doing in 2014 and what we hope to achieve next year. 

Our achievements in the first half of 2014-15

Since the end of 2013-14 our achievements include: 

Our aspirations for the rest of 2014-15

Our plans, subject to funding, include projects in these areas:  
  • Debt and Young People - What is the impact now and in the future?
  • Understanding the Social Determinants of Illicit Drug Use - and what this means for addressing the problem of illicit drugs.
  • The Public Interest: Who is speaking for it and how can it best be protected?
  •  Inequality and Education: - a possible follow on from our Inequality project.
If you would like to know more about any of these projects contact us at 

The concerning part 
There are plenty of big issues facing Australia and we have many aspirations for helping our country address them - but when if you look at the financial statements in our annual report you will see that we deliver a lot from a very low base.

Our work is funded by donations and grants – and depends 
on volunteer and pro bono support. We are very grateful for this but with more resources we could plan ahead and do a lot more for you.  So, unashamedly this message ends with a request for help.

We have an exciting program planned - whether it happens depends on whether we can raise the resources to deliver it. If you think what we do is important for your future and the future of all Australians, please support us by donating to Australia21. 
Warm regards
Lyn Stephens
