Mission Vision

Our Mission is to prevent child sexual assault and exploitation in our society.

Our Vision is to make Australia the safest place in the world to raise a child.

Our Guiding Principles are to, at all times, tenaciously pursue our Mission without fear, favour or compromise and to continually ensure that the best interests, human rights and protection of the child are placed before all other considerations.

Our Guiding Values are to, at all times, do all things to serve our Mission with uncompromising integrity, respect, energy and empathy ensuring fairness, justice, and hope for all children and those who protect them.

The 3 Piers to Prevention

Bravehearts works tirelessly to make Australia the safest place in the world to raise a child through the 3 Piers to Prevention:

All children and young people receive evidence-based, age-appropriate personal safety education.

All adults are trained, aware and motivated to protect children, and adequate specialist counselling and support is available to all child and adult survivors of child sexual assault and exploitation and those who support them. 

All systems of community and government engage effectively and respond at all times in the best interests of the child.

The 3 Piers to Prevention is a culmination of intensive research into how to reduce the incidence and ultimately, prevent the occurrence of child sexual assault and exploitation.

Congratulations Bravehearts for your ongoing work educating, empowering and protecting Australia’s children and adult survivors of child sexual assault.
– Julia Gillard, Former Australian Prime Minister

Dear valued clients,

The health, safety and wellbeing of our clients is, and always has been Bravehearts highest priority. The situation regarding the Novel Coronavirus (COVID-19) locally and around the world is changing daily. Considering the latest government directives in response to COVID-19, and in looking forward as far as is possible, we are making changes to the way we deliver our support services. Bravehearts have moved to a position of contactless service delivery. All regular sessions and support services will now be conducted via telephone and our E-Health platform.

Bravehearts will continue to provide counselling and support services to all existing and new clients.  

The decision to proceed in this way has been made to safeguard the health, safety and wellbeing of our clients, staff and that of the community. The service changes are temporary. We will advise you of further changes.

We continue to accept and action new referrals for all services. Anyone wanting to access our services can call Bravehearts on 1800 272 831. People can still be referred, by calling, or by filling out an online referral form. We anticipate having a significant online and telephone capability to support clients and the community through this time.

If you have any questions about the changes outlined above, please don’t hesitate to get in touch.

We appreciate your understanding during this uncertain time.
