By giving a small gift every month, you can be part of powerful change this year. Your gift will help Berry Street continue to care for children and young people who have experienced abuse, trauma and neglect, including providing safe homes and access to specialist counselling. It's an incredible gift to help a child or young person recover and thrive.

Small act big impact. This year, you can help change lives.

A small but powerful change.

Did you know that in Australia 1 in every 33 children needs child protection services*? That’s 1 in every classroom.

The number of children in out-of-home care in Victoria continues to increase. In fact, concerning reports show that Victoria is on track to have almost 25,000 children in care by 2026. This is more than any other state and territory and could increase even more due to the ongoing impacts of COVID-19.

As one of Australia's largest independent family service organisations, we are educating, supporting and caring for some of the most vulnerable people in our community every day - which is only possible with the support of people like you.
