The problem

Every day in Australia there are more than 186 substantiated reports of child abuse or neglect. There are also almost 48,000 children unable to live with their parents and are living in out-of-home care.*

These children face real challenges each and every day, and in some cases they have no one left to turn to except Barnardos and now you. These children need someone who believes in them. If like us you believe that every child deserves a safe and loving home free from abuse and neglect then your support is urgently needed.

The children in our child sponsor program are real children who have been carefully selected to participate. These children and their families have agreed to take part and want you to know about the difficulties they face, the dreams they have for the future and the progress they make.


Your support at a glance:

  • You will receive a welcome pack along with real updates from your child and their case worker showing you how Barnardos and now you are helping to change their life for the better.
  • You will get the opportunity to communicate with your sponsor child over the course of the coming months.
  • It really won’t cost you much, you can help change a child’s life for as little as $30 a month. That’s just $1 a day.
  • All donations over $2 are tax deductable.

Help these children turn their lives around by joining the Barnardos child sponsor program today.
