Alannah & Madeline Foundation

AU
Every two minutes in Australia, there is a report of child abuse, neglect or family violence.

But it doesn’t need to be that way, and with your support we can change that.

The Alannah & Madeline Foundation’s vision is that every child will live in a safe and supportive environment and is committed to protecting children from violence and its devastating impacts.

Two years of lockdowns and uncertainty has led to a significant rise in family violence, as families deal with the added pressures of being confined together, lost employment and many being cut off from their usual support networks at school and in the community. But with your support, together we can break the cycle of family violence and help our most vulnerable children get the love and care they desperately need and deserve.

The Foundation was set up in memory of Alannah and Madeline Mikac, aged 6 and 3, who were tragically killed with their mother and 32 others at Port Arthur, Tasmania on 28 April 1996. For more than 20 years, the Foundation has cared for children and young people who have experienced or witnessed serious violence and helped them to recover, worked to prevent harm and been a voice to end childhood violence.
