Act for Kids is a for-purpose organisation that delivers evidence-based professional therapy and support services to children and families who have experienced, or are at risk of harm.

Established in 1988, we have grown from just one part-time therapist in Brisbane to a team of over 430 staff from Adelaide all the way up to the Cape York Peninsula. Across the past three decades, we have helped over 300,000 children, young people and families at our 30 centres across Australia.

Through prevention, treatment, research, education and advocacy, we are committed to help keep kids safe, heal from trauma and lead happy lives.

Last year, over 480,000 reports were made to child protection authorities in Australia. Over 174,700 children accessed child protective services, and 48,886 children were confirmed to have suffered abuse or neglect. That’s 1 in every 32 Australian children.

Through this period, Act for Kids helped 40,434 people, 25,997 of those were kids.
