Australian Services

Supporting children in Australia to reach their potential.

As Australia’s leading child rights organisation, we champion children in Australia as experts in their own lives. We listen to their needs, amplify their voices and advocate alongside them so they can live their rights, today and tomorrow. We ensure all rights in Australia are met so that children can thrive — in all their diversity, creativity and curiosity. We understand that every community has its own needs, so we build deep and trusting relationships in communities to deliver excellent services in every state and territory. We run outcome-driven programs across the country, up-skilling parents to protect their children, working with children to enhance their wellbeing and development, and supporting young people to reach their potential. Below you will find a snapshot of some of the critical services we provided across the country this year.
