Save the Children opened its first Australian branch in Victoria in 1920 – the same year we began in Europe.

Between 1920 and 1940, our Victorian branches shipped milk powder, flour and clothing to Europe to provide famine relief for refugee children. In 1951, we expanded our focus to include Australian children and opened welfare centres and pre-schools for Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander children in Victoria.

Today, we run Early Childhood Care and Development programs for Aboriginal, Torres Strait Islander and newly arrived migrant children, as well as children living in disadvantaged and isolated communities.

With our national office based in Melbourne, we run fundraising events and campaigns to support our local, national and international work.
