Safe StartSupport Maternity hospitals provide a safe start in the case of emergency.
The St Kilda Mums Safe Start Project supports social workers at the Royal Women’s Hospital and Sandringham Maternity Hospital to provide emergency material aid to their most vulnerable families.
This project allows us to supply emergency nursery essentials in time of crisis. These include portable cots, prams, clothing, linen, labour bags and other critical items to these hospitals. All these items must be new in accordance with hospital policy.
This project has been made possible with the generous support of Hire for Baby, The Dyson Bequest, The Fouress Foundation, Gourlay Charitable Trust and The Sentinel Foundation. Hire for Baby provide the hire and fitting of a newborn car restraint free of charge.
We invite you to become a Safe Start Supporter. You can help ensure the continuity and expansion of this project to other maternity hospitals in Victoria. If you would like to meet with our CEO for a tour of our warehouse and to learn more about this project please email us. Thank you!
