We believe in children.

Every child deserves a safe and stable home free from abuse and neglect.

We work to keep thousands of Australian children and young people safe from abuse.

You can make a difference.

What we do

Barnardos Australia is a leading child protection charity, supporting families and children in need.

At Barnardos, we believe that every child deserves a safe and stable home free from abuse and neglect, with family members to love and care for them for all of their childhood.

Barnardos works to keep thousands of children safe within their own families - and for those children who can’t be kept safe, we find new homes, while still keeping them in touch with their origins. We continue to strive to find new ways of preventing child abuse and trauma.

Our children are our future.

Dylan's Story

Dylan hid under the kitchen sink as his parents fought violently each night.

Children like Dylan who have survived family violence need specialised and patient care to heal from their terror and trauma. Please donate today to help them learn that the world isn’t a place to hide from, and that there are people out there they can count on.
