About Us

KidsAid came into existence ten years ago when a group of professional people working with families were shocked at how little provision there was for children and young people that had suffered from trauma. The group included a family law barrister, a retired paediatrician and a social worker.

KidsAid has successfully been working with children and young people aged 3-18 years old that have suffered abuse, neglect, domestic violence, illness, bullying among many other things. We continue to work with more and more families each year, although feel that there are so many more children, young people and families that need us. We aspire to continue growing and raising our profile so that every family that needs us will know how to access our services when they need us.

“I am so proud to be a part of the vital work that KidsAid does in our community. Children living in the aftermath of trauma need and deserve the kind of support that KidsAid can offer.”
Countess Spencer, Patron of KidsAid.
