Barnardos Australia is here because every child needs a champion. We listen, we act, and we advocate for the safety of children at risk of abuse and neglect, providing family support programs and services that empower children to reach their full potential. When it comes to protecting vulnerable children from abuse, we never give up. We are dedicated to the prevention of trauma in children, and support families to be the best parents they can be. We help children to recover and thrive, and we find safe homes for them through foster care and open adoption.
WHERE YOUR FUNDS GO
Thousands of Australian children are living at risk of abuse and violence in their homes. You can help keep them safe from abuse and neglect.
COUNSELLING AND THERAPY
Counselling and specialist therapy for children who have experienced trauma to help them overcome their past and understand that it is not their fault.
Intensive support to families who are struggling with poverty, homelessness and mental health issues to prevent abuse and neglect from occurring in the first place.
Children who have experienced abuse and neglect often have health problems so we provide dental work, glasses, nutritional support or speech therapy for children in our care.
Academic support for children at school and at home who have fallen behind so that they can get back on track with their education.
Items such as school uniforms, toys and books to help children settle into their new home and environment.
Recruitment and training of our dedicated carers is a big part of Barnardos work. They have our support day and night.
