Barnardos – Aboriginal Early Year Intervention Program
Barnardos believes that every child deserves to be safe in their own home.
Our Aboriginal Early Years (AEY) Service is just one example of the work we do in the Pyrmont and Ultimo area that is in desperate need of additional support.
The early intervention family support service provides help for Aboriginal families with children aged 0-5yrs. With a home visiting service, parenting and group work programs, playgroup partnerships and strong integration into community activities and involvement we keep children supported, help their parents to parent, and build people's self esteem.
We want children to be protected, nurtured and have the environment that allows them to be and do the things we wish for every child.
Human trafficking happens in many industries within Australia. Freedom Hub help rebuild the lives of people who have experienced this slavery and partner in the global fight to end this crime.
We run a Survivor School for rehabilitation, a Café/Event Venue for funding, a slave free retail range for shopping and collaborate with partners to help end this crime. The Freedom Hub Survivor School is a place where survivors are trained, encouraged and prepared for the workforce. A place where, through one-to-one mentoring, supported learning and practical application with partnered businesses; survivors can learn faster, feel valued, and trust is reestablished. Survivors are accelerated into a position of success. The Freedom Hub helps survivors stay motivated & seek opportunities to live a life of freedom, by offering supported learning and work experience, setting them up to have another go and not lose heart.
Recycling furniture and whitegoods to those who need them most in the inner city.
We work with more than 40 social work agencies in the City of Sydney. Since 2012, we have provided thousands of pieces of furniture, whitegoods and other household items to over 500 people, significantly reducing the amount of unwanted material going to landfill. Our clients are often setting up home after a major disruption in their lives, a period of homelessness, arriving in Australia as a refugee, leaving a home as a result of domestic violence or rehab or from a period in detention.
