Our story

Geelong Mums was born in April 2013, following in the footsteps of St Kilda Mums in Melbourne.

Geelong Mums was established in April 2013. For the first 12 months we operated from a small shed and from volunteers’ homes. In August 2014 we appointed our first employee, General Manager Kate Kent, and moved into a large warehouse in South Geelong.

Geelong Mums is a branch of St Kilda Mums, operating under its legal entity and governance structure. Geelong Mums has its own operations committee based in Geelong with four members, working closely with the St Kilda Mums team. The final branch of the group of three is Eureka Mums in Ballarat.
