OzChild is a leading child welfare organisation committed to improving the lives of at-risk children, young people and families in our community for nearly 170 years.
We work hard every day to provide a better future for those in our care with the belief that every child and young person deserves the chance to shine.
We are focused on providing support for children and young people in foster or kinship care and keeping families together where possible through the delivery of evidence-based programs and services aimed at strengthening and repairing relationships.
OzChild was one of the first not-for-profit organisations to introduce evidence-based programs to Australia and have a proven record of working collaboratively with government to allocate investment in innovative solutions to achieve better outcomes for vulnerable children and young people.
“It is no longer good enough for a child to only get what is available. We strive to give a child what is needed and what the evidence says works.”
Today OzChild employs over 700 staﬀ, carers and volunteers in Victoria, New South Wales, Queensland and the ACT, delivering 26 programs and services to over 10,000 children, young people and family members each year.
