Annual Report

MacKillop has continued to provide outstanding support to vulnerable children and families in a vastly changed world, right through the pandemic.

Our programs support children, young people and families through the toughest of times. We do this by building strong and enduring relationships, delivering quality services, and maintaining a consistent focus on therapeutic, child-focused and trauma-informed practice.

Critically, our practice is informed by evidence. We collaborate with academic researchers to evaluate our programs, and we continue to build the evidence base to shape the service system of the future.

Our outcomes are demonstrated through this evidence, and in the amazing stories of the resilient young people and families we work with. Read more in our Annual Report and in the stories below.
