We are marking our 200 year history of helping people change their lives and driving social change.
The Benevolent Society was founded in Sydney in 1813 and fought for many social supports Australians take for granted today, including free legal aid, the old age pension, the end of child labour and high quality maternity care.
Come down to Martin Place where our world-first convertible mobile kitchen will be set up and join the celebrations.

As you are may be aware, The Benevolent Society is launching the Race for Change - a corporate team bike race established in 2013 to celebrate our 200 years anniversary! This is targeted at teams of keen cyclists in the corporate world but could also be of interest to others. Teams will race against each other and raise money for The Benevolent Society while doing so!
