Act for Kids

Act for Kids is an Australian charity providing free therapy and support services to children and families who have experienced, or are at risk of child abuse and neglect.

We have helped thousands of children and families for over 30 years. Act for Kids operates over 26 centres with a team of over 400 staff from Adelaide all the way up to the Cape York Peninsula.

Our services have expanded to include integrated therapy, support for vulnerable families, special workshops to empower kids and safe houses in remote Aboriginal communities.

Our volunteers are the heroes

Volunteers are a vital part of our team; they're an extension of our workforce and inspire us every day with their commitment to our work.

Act for Kids is often looking for volunteers to help with fun and exciting upcoming events and fundraising opportunities. Watch this space for updates.

Christmas Volunteer Image
As Christmas approaches, we are actively seeking hundreds of volunteers to help us make our Christmas Gift Wrap a huge success this year!
This year, we have a number of different locations around Brisbane, running the Christmas Wrap service across the month of December in the lead up to Christmas Day.
You don’t have to be an expert gift wrapper to participate! We are looking for friendly, reliable and passionate people to help us run the stands, wrap pressies and share some Christmas joy this holiday season.
We have a large number of shifts to fill during the day, late nights and weekends and everyone is invited to help! It’s a great activity for parents and kids to give back to the community during the school holidays – please note that kids under the age of 16 will need to have an adult present.
And if gift wrapping isn’t your thing, please keep our service in mind and pop down to donate a dollar and get your Christmas wrapping done!
