We believe that every child, no matter what their background, deserves freedom and to have the opportunity to learn, be healthy and grow up in a safe environment.


Working together since 2012, the End Child Detention Coalition currently has 26 member organisations, amongst which there is a total of 150 staff, around 1,200 volunteers and approximately 150,000 supporters across all States and Territories of Australia. Collectively, these organisations possess a wealth of experience in policy and advocacy, as well as years of experience working effectively together. The End Child Detention Coalition advocates for the release of children from immigration detention and takes the position that detention is never in the best interests of a child.
