One in six Australian children are at risk of neglect and abuse, and one in four are not ready to start school because of poor living and developmental environments.

Opportunity Child, a collaboration between the ten20 foundation and the Australian Research Alliance for Children and Youth, has formed to take a grassroots approach to tackling child vulnerability.
