The problem

Every day in Australia there are more than 130 substantiated reports of child abuse or neglect. There are also nearly 40,000 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 then your support is urgently needed.

The children in our virtual foster care 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:

  • Your help is so desperately needed. Help shine light on the issues these children are facing all across Australia.
  • It really won’t cost you much. Help change a child’s life for $30 a month. That’s just $1 a day – and less than the cost of a bottle of water.
  • You will get real feedback from your child. You will receive a welcome pack along with updates from your child and their case worker showing you how your gifts are helping to turn their life around.

Help these children turn their lives around by joining the Barnardos virtual foster care program today.
