This year we are proudly celebrating our 20th Birthday!

We are so proud to have supported thousands of vulnerable children and their families over the past two decades.

Every week our dedicated team of trained and supervised volunteers go into the homes of vulnerable families to help give young children a better start in life, including

  • The little boy whose sister is so severely disabled that the family can rarely leave the house
  • The three children who have fled with their young Mum to escape domestic violence, and are now living in poverty and rural isolation
  • The young boy struggling to cope with the sudden death of his mother following a fatal accident

Tragically, we have to turn away almost half of the families that come to us for help, due to lack of resources. Our 20th birthday wish is to support every child that needs us.  We can’t do it without you – please take a look at our birthday wish list to see how you can make a difference.
