What's happening across MacKillop
Supporting students to adapt to COVID-19
The MacKillop Institute has partnered with Professor Anne Graham AO to develop a learning resource to support children and young people to understand and manage the social and emotional impact of the pandemic.
Join us in empowering communities and families so children can develop to their potential.
Become a foster carer
By providing a stable home, you can help give children and young people a brighter future.
Your gift today can help a child heal from past trauma and develop to their potential in a supportive and nurturing family.
Volunteers are a vital part of our team. They make a unique contribution by providing valuable support that complements MacKillop’s staff.
At MacKillop Family Services, we work for the rights of all children to be free to enjoy their childhood in a safe and loving home, where they are nurtured and have a sense of belonging and cultural identity.
MacKillop Family Services provides support to some of the most vulnerable families in our communities.
Child, Youth & Family
Empowering children, young people and families so they can heal from past trauma and develop to their potential.
Young people learn most effectively when they feel safe and supported. Our programs support people who are disengaged from education to reconnect with learning.
We support children and young people with a disability and their families through tailored services that build confidence and encourage independence. MacKillop is a registered NDIS provider.

Finding strength in her culture
When MacKillop’s family therapists first met Evelyn*, she was navigating the collective traumas of her three children, all of whom had been in care the previous year.
Supporting his potential
Because of his violent behaviours, Callum was only attending school for six hours a week. He was referred to MacKillop Education and quickly began to thrive a structured, predictable, and trauma-informed classroom.
