Alone, at home or overseas, no child should fear for their life
A child’s home should be where they feel safest. But for many Australian children, home is the most dangerous place they can be. They live in constant fear. Fear of neglect. Fear of being belted again. And again. Fear of what may happen once they are tucked up in bed.
Every 16 minutes, an Australian child somewhere is subject to some form of neglect, or physical, emotional or sexual abuse. This abuse is happening right here in our own homes, schools and backyards. Childhood is supposed to be carefree. But child abuse can make even the most innocent things terrifying. And the impact can last a lifetime.
No child should live with this fear. And you have the power help Australian Children.

Wherever there’s a need, we’re there. From our Family Violence Refuges in Queensland to our supported play programs in Tasmania, our child protection programs are proven to make a difference; protecting families, stopping the cycle of abuse and giving children the chance to thrive.
