About Act for Kids

Act for Kids is an Australian charity organisation which provides support services and free therapy to children as well as families who have experienced or are at risk of neglect and child abuse. Formerly known as the Abused Child Trust, the charity has already helped thousands of children and families since March 1988.

The charity currently operates 22 centres with over 300 staff members from Adelaide to Cape York Peninsula on their team.

“Last financial year, we were able to provide therapy, support and education to 21,698 Australians, a 36% increase on the year before. It’s not glamourous work that we do… our therapists will tell you that. But it’s necessary and it’s needed and through the strength of the team at Act for Kids and the ongoing support of those around us, every day we put little lives back together,” said Act for Kids CEO Dr Neil Carrington.
