What we do

Care. Prevention. Advocacy.

We champion and strengthen the rights of children and young people to be free from violence and trauma wherever they live, learn and play.


Our Care programs provide support for children and young people who have experienced violence or trauma – and for their families, carers and communities.

Crushed But Okay

Equipping young men with strategies to manage rejection, when online intimate relationships don’t go the way we expect or hope.


The safety of children and young people is why we are here. Our child-rights framework informs everything we do.

It drives our mission to ensure that all government, community and business decision making considers the best interests of the child, first and always.

It’s their right. And it’s our ongoing mission to make it happen.
