The program

We are excited to be announcing that we will be able to receive donations again from our wonderful community.

Our ability to receive and distribute Material Aid has changed this year and decisions are always being made inline with Government directions. It has felt like a long road to this point.

To keep everyone safe, we do have to do things differently for a while. Our Essendon office will be able to receive donations on Fridays from 10-1pm (COMMENCING FRIDAY 13TH NOVEMBER). Our Caroline Springs office is CLOSED until further notice.  Its business as usual for donations at our Shepparton office.

So… to target our current specific needs, if your children have grown out of the following sizes and they are clean and still in great condition, please drop them to our door on any Friday between 10am-1pm – beginning next week the 13th November.

• 0000           • 000

• 2                 • 3

• 4                 • 5

If you have new children’s clothes, any size up to age 5, we would be grateful to accept those. Also baby slings like the ergobaby are perfect!

We will not be able to take the bigger items at this time, like prams.

For updates, please check our Facebook page.

THANK YOU for helping us do the work we do, we could not do it without you!!

The team at Caroline Chisholm.


Pregnant and new families we support, be it through our family support, groups or appointment are often in need of material support.

To meet their needs, we collect donations of baby goods and clothing, new or in good and safe condition to give to pregnant women and young families. We also collect maternity wear and other goods for mothers.

For families to be offered the most dignified access to support, we ask that all goods have been checked individually by you before you donate.

Contact us for any specific questions in regards to donations and to find out when and where to donate goods.
