All children deserve to be loved and nurtured. Yet every day in Australia there are more than 186 substantiated reports of abuse and neglect*.

Many parents wish to nurture their children effectively but the trauma in their own lives prevents them. Violence, mental illness, drugs and alcohol as well as poverty and homelessness affect the lives of many children known to us.
