What We Do

The Foundation cares for children who have experienced or witnessed serious violence, and runs evidence-based programs that prevent violence and advocate for children's safety and wellbeing.

Our care programs support children who have witnessed or experienced violence.

Our prevention programs promote behaviour-change in schools and libraries across the country to teach respectful values and behaviours in young people on and offline.

Our advocacy work speaks out for children and advocates for their right to be free from violence and bullying.
