strip Your donation makes a difference

Because of generous people like you, Barnardos Australia can continue to help children and families facing issues such as violence, poverty, homelessness, substance abuse and mental illness. Last year we supported 13,654 children, young people and families by empowering them to reach their brightest future.


1,302 children

were helped through early learning and education programs.


1,600 young people

were supported to overcome life’s challenges by building resilience and positive relationships.


90% of families

that Barnardos supported were in programs to keep their children safe at home.

Together we can achieve so much!
