We are really worried, all the grandmothers especially, about our young generation... They are the next generation, they are our future.

The system is failing our children, families and communities. With your support, we can prevent this. 

The Northern Territory has the highest rates of children and young people being removed from their families, being locked up and abused. Almost all of these children are Aboriginal. Our children are precious, they are our future. We must stop this. 

Children's Ground is about prevention. It is about the prevention to detention and creating the future and opportunities that all Australian children deserve.

We know that change is possible. We have the evidence and we are seeing this change every day.

The solutions lie within communities. If we start early with the generation born today and walk with them til they are big we won't just 'Close the Gap', we can prevent it from ever forming. 

Be part of this change by donating to Children's Ground. Invest in the prevention to detention and create a new future for the next generation of First Nations children.
