Our Impact In 2020
Vulnerable children and their families supported through specialised services.
Children lived safely in foster and kinship care.
Children found families through open adoption.
Barnardos is one of Australia’s leading children's charities. Barnardos Australia believes all children and young people deserve caring families in which they can grow safely and fulfil their potential. We work together with children, young people and families to break the cycle of disadvantage, creating safe, nurturing and stable homes, connected to family and community.
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.
Little essentials 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.
