What is BerrySafe?

BerrySafe is a group of people like you who are joining together to fund Berry Street programs that help children caught up in family violence or who are suffering from neglect or abuse right now.
You can help stop child abuse, provide safety and help a child recover by making a monthly gift to Berry Street today.

Yes! I will help children be BerrySafe.

BerrySafe - Donate

I would like to help stop child abuse, neglect and trauma by becoming a BerrySafe supporter and making a monthly gift.

Your gift will be charged monthly in the first week of the month.

Sadly, incidents are increasing in Australia, with one in three* children suffering some sort of abuse.

Children can be harmed through physical, emotional or sexual abuse and when their basic needs aren’t met. Being ‘on alert’ or frightened can become a way of life.

This effects their brain development and means they can fail to meet critical developmental milestones, which has life-long impacts.

How can I help stop child abuse and help a child recover?

For as little as a $1 per day your gift can do so much to help children be safe.

  • A safe place to live — With your support we can work with families, extended families and foster carers to create a safe place to live. Together we can also provide homes for young people who live with our support workers.
  • Ongoing care and learning opportunities — Through your vital monthly gift we can work with children and their families to help overcome their trauma. We will make certain that the children in our care get all the help they deserve at school.
  • A chance to have some fun — Your ongoing assistance will help children and young people learn to trust again, build their confidence and skills and foster lasting friendships.

Eve's Story

All it takes is love and security to transform a little girl like Eve.

Eve’s childhood up to the age of six was not what any child should have to endure. She woke screaming and wet as she relived the traumas of her early years, where violence and neglect were commonplace. Her frail body showed the ravages of a life where safety didn’t exist, and meals and hygiene were secondary, if thought of at all.Eve’s foster family has given her security, love and all the support and encouragement they can. Her journey has been a heart breaking one but she’s now starting to recover.

Thanks to Berry Street supporters, Eve and countless children like her can look forward to being a child, having fun and feeling safe.
