Barnardos Mother of the Year Award

As a family support and foster care charity, Barnardos Australia works with a diverse range of families - including single parents, foster parents, same sex couples, relatives caring for the children of family members, and children who are cared for by their grandparents. Now more than ever, greater numbers of children and their families are struggling with the day to day stress of raising children, and COVID-19 has only added to family struggles and vulnerability.

Barnardos’ priority is to assist the most vulnerable children and families in our community with all our available resources. With this in mind, we have made the decision to bring the Barnardos Mother of the Year Awards to an end. We would like to thank and acknowledge all the amazing mums in our community that we have celebrated over the last 25 years.
