Real children, real stories
Every child has the right to be safe in their own home. Yet every day, right here in Australia, there are more than 145 substantiated reports of child abuse and neglect. Every two weeks, one child dies as a direct result of assault. These children have been exposed to exceptionally difficult circumstances in their young lives - abuse, violence, poverty, drug and alcohol issues, mental illness, homelessness and disability. Many of them have never known what it’s like to grow up in a safe, stable place with adults they can trust.
These children are more than just a statistic, they are real children with real stories and they deserve every chance to grow and develop. Meet some of these children, who with your help can get the support they need to recover. * Please note: Names changed and models used to protect privacy.
