Welcome to Kidsreach

Helping those who help children

Kidsreach Directors

Welcome to this page where we will try and tell you a little bit about what Kidsreach is, and what we try to do.   Kidsreach could be described as a small organisation with a big vision. We believe we can make a difference by standing alongside the precious people who work hard to make a difference in the lives of children.


Kidsreach was started in NZ in 1994 from a vision to assist those who work with children. Since that time, centres have been set up in three countries (NZ, Australia and Sri Lanka) and partnerships with missions and indigenous outreaches to children in 7 other countries.


Kidsreach has a vision to fulfil the mandate God has given us through providing resources, training and encouragement.  


We particularly aim to assist those who work with children who have been subject to abuse, poverty, warm, crisis and who are dealing with the effects of trauma. We offer a range of resources in these areas and travel to countries where this is a particular problem.


We aim to lift up those who work with children through inspiring conferences, one on one mentoring, encouragement and resources.  We also desire to promote not only our own Kidsreach material but to be a vehicle to promote other ministries who share a similar vision.


Training Programs that are done in various countries include:

  • The Kidsreach School of Children’s Counselling.
  • The Kidsreach School of Children’s Ministry.
  • Trauma and Abuse Seminars
  • Bullying seminars
  • A range of children’s ministry seminars.
  • Kids Keep Safe awareness program for children in schools.

Kidsreach is incorporated in NSW, Australia.  We are a non-denominational Christian Trust with a Trust  Board.  The directors of Kidsreach are David and Therese Goodwin. They are available for training and ministry and can be contacted at [email protected].
