What do we do?

Geelong Mums recycle nursery equipment like cots, prams, and car seats, as well as clothes and other baby essentials.

Geelong Mums volunteers collect donations of pre-loved and new baby items. We then work in partnership with local social service agencies and Maternal Health Nurses from across the Geelong region, who request items for local families in need.

We take pride in ensuring all items rehomed meet current Victorian 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 bundle from Geelong Mums. We see it as giving a gift, packed with love to provide practical support and show that people care about them. To see the quality of the beautiful nursery gear we rehome please check out our Facebook photo gallery.
