Lend some support to young mums who are struggling right now by donating new toiletries or vouchers
A $40 donation can buy a voucher to help a young mum
New toiletries and educational toys are desperately needed for a support group helping young mums who are facing pressures due to housing crisis and isolation. The young mothers who are involved with the centre are often struggling with feelings of isolation, having lost connection with school friends and groups. The community learning and resource centre works to support young mums under 23 years old offering them the chance to participate in personal development activities, and have a sense of social connection.
These brave mums, some of whom are teenagers, are facing high-risk situations caused by lack of housing as well as emotionally and financially controlling behaviours of partners. The centre is preparing to open a shower facility, enabling mums in vulnerable circumstances to access essential personal hygiene amenities, while their children can be safely watched.

Your generous donation of new toiletries and vouchers will do more than just help a young mum doing it tough. It will show them that someone cares.
If you're purchasing vouchers to donate directly, all different kinds are welcome. Coles and Woolworths vouchers are perfect for buying toiletries; Kmart, Big W and Target vouchers are great for educational toys.
Your donation will be so appreciated. We believe every interaction with a client should be a high-quality experience, we want to make this a luxury experience that they may not otherwise get to have.
The mums come to our group to connect with peers. We also cover improving parenting knowledge and skills, building effective relationship skills and introducing pathways to employment, education and training. We are a NFP and rely heavily on the kindness and support from community members.
