Children by Choice is an independent Brisbane-based non-profit organisation, committed to providing unbiased information on all unplanned pregnancy options – abortion, adoption and parenting. We have a pro-choice and client-centred approach.
We provide non-judgemental all options counselling, information and referrals for Queensland women and people with uteruses experiencing unplanned pregnancy, and post-abortion counselling, through our Queensland-wide phoneline and in person at our Brisbane office.
We also provide sexuality education to young people and professional development training for health and community sector professionals. We work to advance Queenslanders’ reproductive choices, and to improve access to safe and legal abortion.
We are a state-wide service and operate Monday-Friday from 9am-5pm. We are funded by the Queensland Department of Child Safety Youth and Women to provide our counselling and community education services. We rely heavily on our members, supporters, and volunteers to assist us in our non-funded work, and are a registered charity with the Australian Charities and Not-For-Profits Commission.
