Check out what we've been up to...

Two very special requests:

"I have a Mother with 4 children under age 3 (plus 2 school age). The little ones are aged 3 weeks, 1yo, 2yo and 3yo. She is in desperate need of a triple pusher or a double with a toddler platform. Are you able to help with this?"

Also another:

"We are helping a Mum who left Sydney due to domestic violence, she has arrived in Melb with nothing. She has a 3 year old girl and 5 week old boy. Could we request some toys for the 3 year old a doll and dolls pram if possible and play mat rattles cloth books for the baby."

If you can help with the double or triple pram or the doll and pram please email us at

Thank you x

As you all know Big Group Hug is run 100% by volunteers. As it is school holidays our dedicated volunteers need some much deserved time with their families.
This means that unfortunately we will be closed tomorrow. We will be back open on Thursday from 9am till 1pm.
We are always on the look out for more volunteers and currently have several positions available.
If giving back to your community and assisting families in need is something you would like to do we would love to hear from you. Please email us at for more information.
