10 Years of Big Group Hug

In 2024 we celebrate 10 years of Big Group Hug

We’ve had the most incredible journey!

Supported by a selfless community we have helped thousands of children and families in some of their most difficult times. 

Whilst caring for her own young children in early 2013, Angela was motivated to redistribute many of the pre-loved items she had utilised for her own children to other vulnerable children and disadvantaged families in her local area in Heidelberg. Angela’s passion and enthusiasm to redistribute her own pre-loved baby goods was contagious, and she initially mobilised her own friends and family to do the same.  

In September 2014, Big Group Hug was established as a new and independent charitable organisation with a clear mission to galvanise and mobilise community support to respond to the immediate needs of young children, in particular vulnerable children and their families wherever they may reside.

From humble beginnings in Angela’s lounge room, to three locations servicing Victoria in 2024, our impact has been enormous.

Tell us your story

We have been fortunate enough to have had an incredible group of people help us out along the way. We’ve shared triumphs, jokes and the occasional tear all while giving back to our community and doing everything in our power to help children thrive. 

We’d love you to tell us how you fit in to the Big Group Hug story.
