Berry Street believes that children, young people and families should be safe, thriving, and hopeful.
We have provided services to children, young people and families for over 140 years, and today Berry Street is one of Australia’s largest independent family service organisations.
We provide a diverse range of programs to around 35,000 people in Victoria each year.
Some of our key programs and services are:
- family violence support services
- education services, including the Berry Street Education Model and Berry Street School
- trauma services, including our Victoria-wide therapeutic service, Take Two
- out-of-home care
- parenting and family services.
We have a strong focus on reorientating the child and family system, family violence services and education system towards early intervention and prevention. We want to make sure that children and families receive the support they need before issues spiral out of control, and so they can stay safely together.
