For over 167 years OzChild has fought to provide better ways to put a safe roof over the head of our most vulnerable and at-risk children; children who, for their own safety, can no longer live with their family as the result of family violence, abuse, alcohol and substance misuse, trauma and chronic neglect.
Every night of the year we keep more than 300 children safe in our foster care and kinship care programs. We provide support services to at-risk families in danger of falling apart. And we provide respite care for the families of children living with a disability to relieve some of the pressure and give the parents or carers a chance to recharge and refresh. We provide educational support and therapy.
We care for kids who need it and deserve it.
Each year OzChild gives more than 6,000 children, young people and their families a chance to shine.
