As Australia begins to return to normal, children remain at the heart of everything we do

For over 30 years we have supported children and families through times of uncertainty and crisis. Find out how we are continuing to support children and download the resources we have developed to help reduce stress and anxiety.

We 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.

We 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.

We Stand
Up for

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.

We Create Understanding For Children

We educate and support adults who look after and work with traumatised children to be better able to understand and respond to their complex needs.

Their collaboration with a network of adults and organisations focuses on creating an environment dedicated to the recovery and healing of children traumatised by abuse, neglect and family violence.
