What is the impact of my donation?

Every dollar that is donated to Barnardos helps provide vulnerable children, young people and families with access to immediate care and ongoing support services:

  • Urgent medical support, therapy and counselling
  • Early learning and education programs
  • Domestic and family violence support
  • Parenting support
  • Transitional/crisis accommodation
  • Aboriginal and child family support

Families like Georgie's are at risk of homelessness.

Where would you go if you were escaping domestic violence? For some parents like Georgie*, they face a terrifying situation - knowing their children’s lives are in danger but having nowhere safe to go. With no family or friends to turn to, they risk homelessness in order to find safety after years of abuse.
