A Canberra-based family centre that supports children with complex needs in foster care, out of home care and transitional care is urgently requiring new furnishings for their family rooms to create a more family friendly environment. The facility, which is 60 years old and in serious need of a makeover, is where families come for supervised contact with their children.

Children who are supported by the family centre are often dealing with the negative affects of highly disruptive home environments. New paint, furniture and toys will be used to create a safe, welcoming and fun environment for these children to enjoy with their loved ones. It's important to the organisation that these children have the opportunity to receive new and quality items, therefore we ask for our generous donors to consider funding the listed items, or purchasing an IKEA voucher.

This project and the associated item requests are part of our GIVIT Together Programs.

Children and their families have 2-4 hour visits here each week. In this time, they do arts, crafts, play outside and play games. We are trying to make this space as family friendly and neutral as possible - full of toys and a positive space.
