Big Group Hug

Sadly, at Big Group Hug, we’re sometimes called upon to help mothers and children who have had to leave their homes to escape family violence. For example, last month we helped a mother who fled her home with four young children due to family violence. We also helped another mother who left her partner due to domestic violence, and is now the sole breadwinner for her family as her ex-partner isn’t paying child support.

When people flee domestic violence, they often leave at a moment’s notice without even time to pack a bag. They leave everything behind and often have to start fresh with nothing. Big Group Hug is able to help by providing them with things like clothing, toiletries, toys, nappies, and baby hardware - whatever we can to help them feel safe and comfortable.

We hope that within the next few weeks we can reopen our warehouse for donations, but in the meantime, if you’re able to make a financial donation, we greatly appreciate it.

Big Group Hug

It's that time of year again - the Big Group Hug Reverse Advent Calendar is back for 2020! Last year you helped us collect more than 7000 items for disadvantaged families. We know that this year even more families are struggling to afford to buy the basic items their children need, so we hope you'll join us once again to show our neighbours some love this holiday season.
