Thank you to our generous philanthropic partners who support our work.
Philanthropy at Berry Street
Berry Street’s purpose is to courageously change lives and reimagine service systems.
Our generous philanthropic partners are key to achieving this purpose. These partnerships allow us to respond to community needs in innovative ways, particularly as we reorient the child and family services system towards early intervention and prevention.
We are very grateful to our philanthropic partners who support Berry Street’s work and enable us to better meet the needs of children, young people and families.
Get in touch
During the COVID-19 pandemic, we continue to provide care to children, young people and families. Protection of at-risk and traumatised children is classed as an essential service. Already vulnerable, these children, young people and families have additional stresses from external factors and are at increased risk due to isolation. Many of our workers are on the front line of care. If you would like to know more about Berry Street’s response to the current crisis, or the immediate and emerging pressures on our services, please get in touch.
We continue to seek independent income from individuals and philanthropic bodies who are confident in Berry Street and want to partner with us to achieve change on a large scale.
- pilot innovative approaches to service delivery
- undertake research and evaluation
- implement our advocacy agenda.
