Trust In Kids is an initiative of UMFC. The fund is for children and young people up to 21 years who have limited opportunities because of family, social, financial or other individual circumstances. Some of these children are affected by issues relating to family violence, mental health and drug and alcohol use. The fund is available for educational, social, recreational and cultural opportunities.
Your donation, no matter the amount, can make a real difference to the lives of children less fortunate than others.
You can also donate your time, skills or knowledge by volunteering at UMFC.

26 May ‐ National Sorry Day
National Sorry Day is a significant day for Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander peoples, and particularly for Stolen Generations survivors. The idea of holding a ‘Sorry Day’ was first mentioned as one of the 54 recommendations of the Bringing them home report, which was tabled in Parliament on 26 May 1997. This report was the result of a two year National Inquiry into the forcible removal of Indigenous children from their families, communities and cultural identity. On 26 May 1998 the first ‘Sorry Day’ was held in Sydney, it is now commemorated across Australia, with many thousands of people participating in memorials and commemorative events, in honour of the Stolen Generations.
