For over 167 years, OzChild has been committed to the protection of Australia’s most vulnerable children and families.

 Our vision is to see a society in which all children, regardless of their background, religion or culture, are living happily in a safe and caring environment.
Our approach is comprehensive; where we can provide multiple services to address the often numerous issues in the lives of children and their families throughout Victoria, New South Wales, Queensland and the ACT.

Become a foster carer with OzChild

Becoming a foster carer is a challenge, but the rewards can be life-changing. We are looking for foster carers to help families that do not have support networks to care for their children in a time of crisis.


Chance to Shine Scholarship

Are you a young person, or know a young person who could benefit from financial assistance? The Chance to Shine Scholarship gives disadvantaged young people the opportunity to reach their life goals by providing funds that develop pathways and build their future.
