Why we need you


The number of children needing child protection services has increased by 27% in the past five years*

Victoria is on track to have almost 25,000 children in out-of-home care by 2026; more than any other state and territory.

1 in every 33 children in Australia needed child protection services. That’s one in every classroom.
