About Us

Home Away From Homework Club (formerly Global Homework Program) provides learning support to assist in developing young people’s confidence and helping them socially and academically to participate in school in a more meaningful way. The club focuses on literacy, numeracy, homework support and study skills.

The club commenced in 2005 with a handful of keen students and has grown into a premier community program helping many children of all ages and backgrounds.

It is also loyally supported by a large and dedicated team of volunteer tutors.


Our new logo was designed to truly reflect the nature, values and aims of the tutoring support service we provide to students.

The colours … orange is a sunrise for awakening, renewal, hope and joy …green is for action (go), the environment and sustainability principles
