Let’s give every child the best start in life
For ordinary people to work together to protect every young child in Australia from the adverse effects of disadvantage.
To mobilise community support to respond to the immediate needs of young children, particularly vulnerable children and their families.
Helping children thrive
Early childhood is a critical time for a child’s emotional, mental and physical development. If they do not have what they need to learn, grow, and feel connected, it can have a significant outcome on their development and future health, well-being, and employment outcomes. In fact, children raised in poverty are two to three years behind in literacy and numeracy by the age of 15.

Children’s wellbeing is critical to brain development and learning.

We aim to minimise the impact of disadvantage by alleviating material disadvantage.
We take pre-loved goods sourced from our community to give them a second life with a disadvantaged family, whilst alleviating the financial burden. The amount of waste that our small organisation cuts down through this up-cycling process is eye-opening. Perfectly good pre-loved items that would otherwise be in landfills are now helping kids in our community.
