We are a volunteer-run not-for-profit organisation based in St Kilda, Melbourne. We rehome new and pre-loved baby goods and nursery equipment to families in need. We believe that by reusing and recycling much-loved babies’ and children’s gear, we not only share the joy of motherhood with each other, but we save the earth’s precious resources too. These donations are distributed to families experiencing hardship in Melbourne and surrounding towns through our partnerships with maternal and child health nurses and local social service agencies.
We take pride in ensuring all items rehomed meet safety standards and are in great condition. We give the items to people who are facing a variety of challenges and we want them to feel uplifted when they receive a donation from us. We see it as giving a gift, packed with love to provide practical support and show that people care about them.
Please help us ensure that no child go without the most basic material needs - like a safe cot to sleep in.
'The work that you do is invaluable, and helps people to know that other people care. Having nice things can help to break the cycle of poverty, and for people who are trapped in a culture of poverty, having something nice can help them to feel normalised. Gina Rennie, Uniting Care Connections
