The media, marketing and advertising foundation UN LTD has doubled the number of charity partners it’s supporting this year, announcing 43 organisations that will receive support as part of the foundation’s mission to UNdo youth disadvantage in Australia.

Across the selected programs delivered by the 2015 youth charities, UN LTD’s support will now directly impact the lives of over 91,000 young people.

“We are absolutely thrilled to be adding some of the most effective operators in the youth charity space to our portfolio of highly effective charity partners. We now have beneficiaries that work in every Australian state and territory and across every form of youth disadvantage,” said UN LTD generalmanager Carol Morris.

New charities that UN LTD will be supporting in 2015 include: The Mirabel Foundation, Youth Futures WA, Hear For You, Big Brothers Big Sisters Australia, The Lighthouse Foundation, the Tamworth Aboriginal Land Council , Child Wise and GIVIT Kids.

The foundation is now addressing UNacceptable youth issues including children abandoned by addicted parents, Indigenous youth health, improving literacy for foster children, mental health awareness, counseling and mentoring for the highest risk young people, education on ethics, accommodation for homeless, accommodation and nutrition for teenage mums, bullying and transition programs for refugee children.

Tasked with the very tough and rigorous process of selecting the 2015 charity partners was a group of representatives from across the industry who donated their time, expertise and feedback in assessing the grant applications that were received directly and via recommendations from across the industry.

The UN LTD Audit and Grants Committee members are: Neil Shoebridge, Director of Corporate and Public Communications at Network Ten; Tom Armstrong, Commercial Director at Fairfax Media; Alison Vandyke, Knowledge and Data Director at GroupM; Kerry Field, Chief of Talent at Mindshare; Stephen Ward, Head of Investor Services at Society One and Kerry McCabe, Managing Director – APAC at RadiumOne and UN LTD Chairman.

New committee members Neil Shoebridge and Tom Armstrong both said the task of assessing the applications was a challenging yet rewarding one.

“As a committee, we were able to shape a powerful social impact program focused on delivering maximum impact from our sponsors’ investment in UN LTD. UN LTD can now introduce these charities to the industry, knowing all the hard work and rigour has already been done in auditing and selecting the organisations,” said Neil Shoebridge, director of corporate and public communications at Network Ten.

“The depth and breadth of issues facing the younger people in our community was one that really resonated in this process. The 2015 UN LTD portfolio of charities, which are largely unrecognised brands, gives the industry a broad choice of quality organisations to connect with,” said Tom Armstrong, commercial director at Fairfax Media.
