What is remarkable is that he did this in honour of his daughters, Alannah and Madeline, who were killed alongside their mother in an unspeakable act of violence one year earlier.
Today, through our 2022-2025 Strategic Plan, we honour our founders and the impact the Alannah & Madeline Foundation has made as we set out our vision for the future.
We uphold the rights of children and young people to be safe.
The right to be safe at home, at play and at school.
The right to be seen and heard, and valued.
The right to go online without abuse.
The right to go to sleep without fear.
The right to heal.
The right to grow.
And sometimes, the right to the unconditional love of a teddy bear when needed most.
We fight for these rights not just because children are precious, but because only when children and young people are safe can they also be happy, hopeful and strong.
Only when they’re safe is their best future possible.
That’s why we’re here, that’s why we do what we do, and it’s what drives us to want to do more.
But, we can’t do it alone.
We need you too. Our 2022-2025 Strategic Plan will guide us in our work, together.
What we’ve accomplished
We fight for their right to be safe, so their future is strong.
...and why we need to do more.
