Through our programs, services and centres, Barnardos reaches out to touch the lives of many thousands of Australian children each year. They are children who live every day with deprivation, disability, neglect and abuse of every kind - and who bear their invisible scars in silence.
The stories of these children are moving, uplifting, frustrating and heartbreaking. But all children helped by Barnardos share the common trait of wanting to move forward and change their lives for the better.
Your money is making a difference to abused children. Here are some of their stories.
