The Challenge

Children in foster care have the lowest education outcomes in Australia.

Many of these children miss out on schooling and stable, positive and healthy family relationships.

Statistics show that young people who exit foster care experience significant social and economic marginalisation, including a range of poor educational and health outcomes.

They are more likely to experience homelessness, higher rates of mental illness, under (or un)employment, substance abuse issues, early parenthood, have low educational attainment and can become involved in the youth criminal justice system.

The Pyjama Foundation works to break the cycle of disadvantage and improve the life trajectory of these children by empowering them with learning, critical life skills and confidence.
