Many of these children have additional physical and emotional needs.
From inception in 1874 The Infants’ Home has played a unique role supporting some of our community’s most vulnerable children.
Since then, more than 180,000 children and families have been able to build new lives with our guidance.
Today, we offer learning and support programs that help young children and their families meet life’s challenges, embrace opportunities, and reach their unique potential – whatever their background or circumstance.
For 139 years we have challenged conventional wisdom to protect children at risk, and strengthen families in vulnerable situations, so they can break the cycle of hardship, fear or hopelessness that affects so many lives.
We know that a child’s early years are fundamental to their journey through life. Concern for the health and wellbeing of children and their primary carers inspires everything we do.
In 2012 our services helped over 1700 children and their families with education, health and early childhood advice, and reached more than 450 families with our early intervention programs.
Our specialist work with children who have additional needs is made possible through the generosity of our donors and supporters.
The Infants’ Home is a registered charity with a long and proud history of innovation. The essence of what we do is best described by one core principle: to provide each child with every opportunity.
