Melbourne we cannot thank you enough. We put a call out for Christmas presents for kids who will otherwise receive nothing for Christmas due to many factors such as homelessness, poverty and the devastating effects of Covid, and in just a matter of days we raised enough money to buy gifts for 100 of our target of 250 children.

Victoria, we thank you. During a time of great suffering for so many, you all came together and helped us help those who were struggling.

We’re a charity supporting all people experiencing homelessness, domestic abuse and disadvantage. And we support people in almost all areas of life. Included in that support is personal hygiene items. It is absolutely crucial that every person experiencing homelessness or disadvantage has access to personal hygiene items. During the pandemic lockdown we twice ran out of absolutely everything, but we managed to re stock, well, almost. We still struggle to get toothbrushes, toothpaste and deodorant. Perhaps when we think of personal hygiene we automatically go straight to soap, or shampoo. Our minds think ‘clean’ and it’s soap with all its […]

It is an incredible honour to lead a charity that provides instant and uncomplicated relief to Victorian people struggling through the coronavirus pandemic. Since April this year we have been able to provide thousands of essential items to those in lockdown.

Despite remaining unfunded we continue to find innovative ways to acquire essential goods and support which we pass directly to those in need. This is only possible because of the vast and ongoing […]

“They’re laughing at the pumpkin,” said Lily. I was confused. I’d just dropped off a huge box of fruits and vegetables to Lily and her two little girls who were squealing excitedly at the large half a pumpkin in the box. “They love pumpkin,” said Lily. But she went on to explain that pumpkin was something she rarely ever bought. I tried to think of why but nothing came to me. “It’s too heavy,” Lily told me, “I can’t carry it home.” Then I remembered. Lily was a single parent and she didn’t have a car. She had to get […]

Another huge day at our HQ, The Kala Space. We sent around 70 play bags for tots, teens and adults off to our friends over at drummond street services to help keep kids and families busy in lockdown. We’ve been receiving feedback that the play bags are hugely popular with the kids and have done a lot to help keep little ones occupied during very tough times. Thank you so very much to everyone who has donated. You have no idea what a huge difference this has made to hundreds of little people who has to stay inside during lockdown. […]
