Barnardos Australia

Established in 1921, Barnardos Australia is a leading child protection and family welfare charity, providing support to approximately 14,000 children, young people and their families throughout NSW and the ACT every year. We work together with children, young people and families to break the cycle of disadvantage, creating safe, nurturing and stable homes, connected to community.

Our intensive support programs in both ACT and Queanbeyan combat family and domestic violence, drug and alcohol abuse, mental health, poverty and homelessness, to strengthen families and keep children safe at home. When this is not possible, we provide safe homes for children through foster care and kinship care or facilitate open adoptions, giving children the permanency and security they need, for life.

On March 9, join us in raising our hands for Canberra!

Be part of the 2nd annual Hands Up for Canberra Giving Day and help us turn this into an annual giving tradition for every Canberran!

March 9th, the day after Canberra Day, will be a historic day for everyone in our community to GIVE BIG - join in on the fun(draising) and support us through the Hands up for Canberra Giving Day! Plus, every $1 you donate will become $2 with our generous matched funding matching dollar-for-dollar until we reach $10,000.

We'll have just 48 hours to raise $10,000! Come on Canberra, together we can do this!
