Day out with the kids

Join forces to take kids from our programs on a fun day out to the zoo, the cinema or other fun activity.

For most of us, childhood was the easiest part of our lives, but for thousands of Australian children, it can be the hardest.

A ‘Day Out With The Kids’ can provide these children with a special opportunity to alleviate the anxiety and stress of everyday pressures and challenges and enjoy an afternoon of care free fun!

Working bees

Come together as a team
to help Barnardos transform
one of our Centres.

Our Centres work tirelessly to provide essential, intensive support for children in our care every day. Sometimes this means other projects are pushed aside, such as gardening, painting, general maintenance or spring cleaning.
Working bees to help make these much needed improvements a reality. They are a great team-building activity and allow your staff to have a real impact on improving our facilities for children and families.
