At Target, we believe that Mother's Day is a time to shine a light on the many roles that women play in children’s lives. To celebrate the grandmothers, carers, teachers, foster parents, biological mums, aunts, sisters, stepmothers, adoptive parents, and mums who don’t have their children in their arms. Women who, no matter their title, play a significant role in the lives of children – and this Mother’s Day, we’re celebrating all of them.
Together with our partner Australian Childhood Foundation we are focusing on supporting programs that enable women and their children to be safe, strong, and healthy.

Target & Australian Childhood Foundation
Partnering together to support the Bringing Up Great Kids program
We have joined forces with the Australian Childhood Foundation to become a champion for women and their loved ones.
We have pledged $250,000 to the Foundation to start the journey with our customers and team in support of this organisation that is making a positive impact and enabling women and their children to be safe, strong and healthy.
Our partnership will assist in the development of a specific adaptation of Australian Childhood Foundation's Bringing Up Great Kids program that will focus on vulnerable young mums as they build positive and nurturing relationships with their children.
For more than 35 years, leading not-for-profit organisation our partner, the Australian Childhood Foundation, have been providing specialist counselling and support programs to young Australians and their families who have been traumatised by abuse and family violence.
The tailored online Bringing Up Great Kids program will focus on the first 1000 days of a child's life, seeking to empower mothers to provide the nurturing and reparative care required by children to recover from the traumatic impacts of abuse and family violence, which can include mental ill-health and social and learning difficulties.
As we build on our partnership we aim to raise awareness about resources available to all parents and make sure that Australian Childhood Foundation can continue to deliver critical services to vulnerable children and parents that need support and care.
By supporting our communities – from mothers, fathers and grandparents to parental figures and children - to be safe, strong, and healthy, we can help to grow a society that holds children with safety and love. That's Target.
