At Barnardos, our vision is for all children and young people to have caring families, where they can grow up safely and fulfil their potential. Every year we work with thousands of families experiencing poverty, homelessness, violence, drugs and mental health issues to help rebuild their lives and keep their children safe from abuse and neglect.
We strive to build resilience in young people and instil children with an early love of learning and connection to culture. We give parents greater confidence in raising and nurturing their children as their first teachers.
We remain committed to giving a voice to children in a world where they often go unheard. Our research, knowledge and expertise keep us at the forefront of advocating for social change and raising awareness of issues that impact children’s rights to a safe childhood.
This Christmas you can bring joy to thousands of disadvantaged Australian children through our Gifts for Kids Appeal. Your support will make sure every child in our care has a gift to unwrap on Christmas Day.
