About us

Safe Places for Children is a not-for-profit organisation that provides young people at risk with intensive therapeutic support and supervision in a homely and welcoming residential care setting.

Since 2006, we have grown our operations from a small but passionate group of youth workers, to an organisation of local teams dedicated to supporting vulnerable young people across Queensland, New South Wales, South Australia, Victoria and Western Australia.

We have made a difference in the lives of more than 1,800 young people ranging in age from 10 to 17 years, who exhibit complex emotional and behavioural problems.

Our approach is based on small, stable and consistent teams that build trust with the young person, stabilise their behaviours and give them a sense of hope and direction.
