The difference you make

You support children in crisis

When children leave a violent home, they often leave with nothing. Your support helps give these children a Buddy Bag. They’re backpacks full of essentials like toiletries and clean clothing, and a cuddly toy to bring comfort.

120,000 Buddy Bags delivered

You keep children safe online, and beyond

Your support helps fund the world-leading eSmart program. It delivers a range of workshops, resources and support to teach children about internet safety, bullying and wellbeing. Which helps children stay safe online, and in life.

81,600+ children reached through wellbeing workshops

You help children heal

Without expert support, trauma can impact every part of a child’s life. You help fund Children Ahead – an intensive, one-on-one therapy program. It helps children process their trauma. And learn the skills they need to recover and thrive.

350+ children received one-on-one therapy

You’re transforming schools and kinders

If trauma goes undetected, it can limit a child’s learning – and their life’s potential. Your support helps our Trauma Consultancy Service teach educators how to spot the signs of trauma, and give children extra support.

5,800+ children supported at school
