The Australia Day Foundation is a non-profit organisation and was established in 2003 with the aim of bringing together the Australian community in the United Kingdom to celebrate Australia's national day and promote Australia as a confident, creative and outward looking nation, with a strong economy and an abundance of talented people.

Creating a lasting legacy. In 2013 the Foundation established a charitable trust to offer financial support to young Australians who wish to undertake a programme to further their education or career in the UK. To apply for a grant, visit
