National Patron, The Hon Scott Morrison MP

"Every Australian child has the right to a safe and happy childhood, and I sincerely thank the Alannah & Madeline Foundation for its resolute commitment to this ideal.

"In particular, I pay tribute to founding members, who, stirred by unspeakable tragedy, responded with unwavering passion to protect and defend children from fear, bullying and violence.

"Such courage and humanity is deeply inspiring, and the Australian Government is proud of its ongoing support for such a worthwhile cause.

"Since the Foundation’s inception more than 20 years ago, the position of National Patron has been held by the Prime Minister, and I am proud to have the opportunity to bring my commitment to this role.

"Keeping children safe from violence is one of the most important responsibilities we have as a society, and we must do all we can to achieve this, with governments, communities, families and individuals working together."

The Hon Scott Morrison MP
Prime Minister of Australia
