We help children, young people and families recover from the devastating effects of violence, abuse and neglect. Our focus is on the right of every child to a good childhood, growing up feeling safe, nurtured and with hope for the future.
We know that a good childhood is the foundation for a healthy society and that whilst parents have the primary responsibility to provide their children with a good childhood, they cannot do this alone.
All children have the same rights and fundamental need for safety, stability, love and support. The trauma experienced by the children and young people with whom we work adds complexity to meeting their needs, but we know it can be done and we never give up.
- Berry Street will continue to focus in two main areas:
- The rights of all children to a good childhood; and
- Supporting those children, young people and families with the most complex issues arising from their personal experiences of abuse, neglect or violence.
