We work to achieve cultural and legislative change that better protects children, and places their needs at the centre of all decision-making
We are working in remote Australia to support at-risk and vulnerable children
Helping children to heal from the trauma of abuse and neglect means giving back to them something that should never have been taken away in the first place - their childhood.
Every child deserves a childhood that is safe and free from harm. At the Foundation, we work in a range of different ways to prevent child abuse and ensure the protection of all children.
Children who have experienced the trauma of abuse and violence need their community to look out for them, and look after them. They cannot be safe and feel safe without a community prepared to act, to understand and to acknowledge the true extent of the issue in Australia.
Much of our work centres on our understanding of the ways trauma can impact on every aspect of children’s lives, and using that knowledge to support their recovery.
We are building Trauma Recovery Centres to ensure children have a safe place to rediscover their childhoods.
Thank you for taking an interest in our work!
The Australian Childhood Foundation works to support and protect vulnerable children and families. We believe all children have the right to a happy and safe childhood.
