Children’s Ground

Despite significant economic growth, pockets of extreme intergenerational poverty and inequity remain across Australia. Decades of government and non-government programs have failed to overcome Australia’s greatest humanitarian crisis. The health, education and wellbeing of Indigenous children requires a radically new approach. For the most vulnerable children, the status quo is frightening. They will become statistics of child protection, prison, school failure, early death and disease, poor mental health and the welfare system. The Children’s Ground is a new approach. They look beyond ‘the problem’ and see the people. They believe in, and harness, the ability of the community and their cultural knowledge systems: building and walking with communities where children can grow up strong both ways, in the Indigenous and non-Indigenous worlds. This approach was built with considerable care and informed by years of experience. They have made a strong commitment using a 25-year model. Volunteer with, donate to, or fundraise for Children’s Ground to help their vital work!
