Together, we can make a difference
Thank you for choosing to become a volunteer with OzChild. Being a volunteer is a great way to make a difference, meet new people and learn new skills, whilst supporting vulnerable children and young people in our community.
In Victoria during 2018-19, 34 children aged 10-13 years were in detention and all were unsentenced. While the number of children is low, the costs of incarceration to these children, their families, their communities and society are high.
Victoria has settled into family life well and now talks with a sense of hope and optimism about her future including her desire to travel and live overseas.
Since being placed in the specialised foster care program, Treatment Foster Care Oregon, William has made great progress at home and school. Read more about William’s remarkable story.
