Barnardos Australia has made a difference to the lives of so many Australian children who would otherwise have fallen through the cracks.
Our commitment to children
At Barnardos, our aspiration is for every vulnerable child to recover, thrive and reach their full potential. Therefore our work focuses on reducing child abuse and neglect, strengthening child and parental mental wellbeing, improving family learning, as well as increasing the sense of belonging for children.
We put children and young people at the centre of everything we do.
