Our Mission / Objective

For over 165 years OzChild has fought to provide better ways to put a safe roof over the heads of our most vulnerable and at-risk children; children who, for their own safety, can no longer live with their families as the result of family violence, abuse, alcohol and substance misuse, trauma and chronic neglect. Each year OzChild gives more than 6,000 children, young people and their families a chance to shine.

OzChild’s mission is to improve the quality of care, life opportunities, safety and status of children by:

  • taking or initiating action to protect or enhance the rights of children
  • providing or enabling direct services through a variety of disciplines for the benefit of children
  • influencing decisions or actions of individuals, organisations and governments, when relevant to children and their families.

Our Services

  • Kinship Care
  • Foster Care
  • Family Services
  • Disability Respite Care

Our Beneficiaries

Australian children and young people

Projects in Progress

  • a safe and nurturing home,for children who can’t live at home, in our Foster Care Program or in Kinship Care;

  • support for families, including providing practical support in times of stress, providing intensive support to children who are at risk of being removed from their families by Child Protection, counselling and in home therapeutic support
