Welcome to Geelong Mums

We are a volunteer-run not-for-profit organisation based in Geelong. We collect donations of pre-loved nursery equipment, cots, prams, car seats, clothes and other baby essentials. These donations are distributed to Geelong families experiencing hardship through our partnerships with maternal and child health nurses and local social service agencies.

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.

Please help us ensure that no child go without the most basic material needs - like a safe cot to sleep in. You can help by donating your pre-loved baby gear. Please go to our donate page for more information about what we can and can’t rehome and when we can accept donations during our opening hours.

How you've helped

“ Through our association with Geelong Mums, case workers can refer to them for the equipment and goods required for effective parenting and focus their time on supporting families to address other issues that are impacting on their lives. A phone call or email is all that is required to request assistance on behalf of a client and Geelong Mums respond quickly to the need with a friendly and caring attitude. This helps relieve the distress and anxiety women feel when having to juggle their family’s needs and the feeling of shame and embarrassment at not being able to provide for them.” SalvoConnect, April 2014
