We believe that children, young people and families should be safe, thriving and hopeful. As one of Australia’s largest independent family service organisations, this belief is the heartbeat of our organisation.

Berry Street is continuing to operate during the COVID-19 pandemic.

Fundraise for Berry Street
Whether you put on your running shoes or organise a morning tea, there are many ways you can help transform the lives of children in our community.
Family Violence
Family violence threatens a child’s sense of safety and changes the way their brain develops. This can lead to emotional and behavioural problems, as well as developmental delays as they grow.
Berry Street commissioned an independent report to model an economic case for early intervention in the child protection and out-of-home care system in Victoria.
