The Smith Family is an independent Australian non-profit children’s charity whose goal is to help the disadvantaged by providing tools and resources for participation in society. Established on Christmas Eve in 1922, the main mission of The Smith Family – via its partners and volunteers – is to create opportunities for young Australians in need by providing long-term support and means for participation in education. Michelin Australia has supported The Smith Family for over a decade by bestowing an annual corporate donation. In addition to the annual corporate donation, employees at Michelin Australia help The Smith Family by volunteering their time and resources in various Smith Family events and charity auctions.

Michelin Australia is a proud partner of the Porsche Kids Driving School, as it fits well with Michelin’s ambition to deliver safer mobility.
The Porsche Kids Driving School has an educational focus as well as being fun, offering primary school aged children valuable road safety lessons.
At Porsche Kids Driving School children aged approximately five to nine learn basic road rules and safe driving from qualified Porsche Sport Driving School instructors and Michelin staff. They will then have the chance to practice what they were taught on a specially designed track in their own Porsche 911 pedal cars.
