Give locally to make a world of difference.

We need your support to protect vulnerable children and families in south east Melbourne and Victoria. 

Despite us moving in and out of restrictions, most of us are getting some normality back in our lives. For many though, the aftermath of COVID-19 is only just beginning.

The many months of social isolation, the extreme emotional and financial stress pose a real and significant threat to vulnerable families throughout our community - especially those impacted by family violence. 

We help more than 20,000 lives every year.

Every single day, we aim to get in early and make a difference in the lives of individuals, families and communities. 

We find solutions for very complex situations and support the most vulnerable in our community to reach their full potential.

Last year alone we supported over 1,800 women and children experiencing family violence or related trauma.

Your donation will help us to continue to deliver vital services to keep vulnerable children and families safe.


Hear from some of the people we've helped

(Through Kids on Track) I learnt more about how drugs and alcohol affect our bodies. I don't want to end up the same way as Dad so I can now care for my body and make better decisions than what he did.

Resilience for Life has been nothing short of wonderful for me, and enormously empowering. I am feeling so much more optimistic and confident in myself, my driving and taking care of my husband.

My (Windermere) counsellor has been one of the most important supports I have had throughout this whole process. She is amazing. I now see things from a completely different perspective.

I am on the lookout now too - next time I am in a relationship, I will be able to recognise the signs of domestic violence and I won’t let myself get stuck in that sort of position again.”
