There were more than 46,000 confirmed cases of child abuse in Australia last year. That's almost 1 case every 10 minutes where a child is suffering from neglect or physical, sexual or emotional abuse (often by people they know and should be able to trust).
Many of these kids get no professional help whatsoever, and end up with lifelong problems. But a small few find themselves at an ACT for Kids centre, where children are given the skills, care and confidence they need to turn their tiny hearts around and lead a normal life. ACT for Kids is also there for Mums and Dads, healing the hurt that abuse and domestic violence causes the whole family.
