Impact

The John Villiers Trust’s mission is to achieve transformative impact in Queensland communities through active engagement and strong partnerships that support children and youth, with our focus on rural, regional and remote Queensland communities.

The Trust’s success is the community’s success. Through it, the lives of children and youth and as a result, families and communities across country Queensland will be transformed over time becoming stronger and more equitable. By working with grantees, partners and community organisations and with the ongoing support of donors, friends and volunteers, and because of our love for country Queensland, The John Villiers Trust is committed to delivering its mission of achieving transformative impact in the lives of children and youth as they face whatever the future may hold.
