Sadly, almost 2.5 million Australians (1 in 8 people) have reported experiencing abuse and violence before the age of 15 years^. There are so many children and young people living with violence today. And they need our help.
Our most vulnerable children need people like you to ensure that they have the specialised therapeutic counselling to help them find the light and experience the joys of childhood again. Donating to our cause helps us to continue to support children who have been abused or hurt by family violence.
With your donation we can continue to:
Help Children Heal
On their own, children do not recover from the devastating impact of abuse, neglect and family violence. They need specialised support to heal. We provide therapeutic services to children so they are able to recover from their trauma.
Keep Children Safe
We build the ability and confidence of individuals and organisations to protect children. We provide parents with education and support to help them raise happy, safe and loved children.
Stand Up for Children
Advocacy for children; amplifying their voices, ensuring their needs are understood and prioritised and their rights honoured and upheld, helps inform and create changes that make all children safer. It’s how we began, and it’s how we’ll continue.
Understand Children’s Needs
We advocate for changes to laws and policies that help to make all children safer. We work to strengthen community attitudes that prioritise the rights of children to love and safe relationships.
