How we transformed the lives of Australian children and their families last year.

Barnardos has provided services for vulnerable children, young people and their families in Australia since 1883 and today is one of the nation’s leading child protection charities. Our focus is on protecting children from abuse and neglect. And on strengthening families to ensure vulnerable children are kept safe at home. Sadly, the need for our very special services continues to grow. For family support and preservation. For temporary, respite and long-term foster care. For open adoption.

This Christmas you can help us make a difference by bringing 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.
