There are many types of abuse

Child abuse, neglect and family violence devastate children and communities across Australia. Children are powerless to stop abuse, yet we as adults can prevent it. The first step is to learn more.

The Australian Childhood Foundation works to save children from the trauma of child abuse, neglect and family violence in these ways:
