Why do we need a campaign for Every Child?
We know that for healthy development, children need life to stay steady: strong support, stable relationships, and a safe place to call home.
But right now, children and young people are being harmed because we don’t give families stability and support when children need it most. Too many children and young people are neglected or harmed; live in poverty and hardship; are placed in out of home care and youth justice centres, and do not meet the developmental milestones in health and education.
It's time we recognised that the best national foundation Australia can have is healthy, safe, well-educated children and young people who are confident in themselves and their future.
