Congratulations to our Barnardos Mother of the Year 2019 National Winner, Maria Worner.

Thank you to everyone who nominated a special mum.

The awards publicly acknowledge the enormous contribution that mums make in shaping Australia's future through their role in nurturing children to help them realise their full potential. 

Now in its 24th year and celebrated to align with Mother’s Day, the awards aim to honour and thank everyday mums who go above and beyond for our children and our communities.
