The Thomas Kelly Youth Foundation was formed following the death of 18 year old Thomas Kelly, who was coward hit in an unprovoked attack in Sydney’s King Cross in July 2012.

The Foundation’s voice has been a powerful catalyst in communicating the need for social and behavioural change and changing Australia’s drinking culture through education and Take Kare initiatives.

Promoting the prevention of harmful behaviour, including that associated with alcohol abuse, self-harm and suicide, is at the core of the Foundation’s Take Kare and Stay Kind work.  

Its educational programs and outreach activities aim to create a safer and healthier community, especially for young Australians. 


The Thomas Kelly Youth Foundation launches the Stay Kind initiative in memory of Stuart Kelly, who can be remembered for his continued support and kindness to his brother Thomas.

The Stay Kind Cup will be held at Bankwest Stadium Sydney on Saturday 15th June 2019.
