Who we help

Geelong Mums supports children and parents experiencing hardship.

We provide material aid in practical partnership with maternal child health nurses and social service agencies. All donations go directly to the families that they support, and each item to someone who specifically needs it.

We do not support individuals or families directly. If you are expecting a baby or need help now you can ask your maternal child health nurse to contact us on your behalf.

If you are a health professional or work for a social service agency and would like to find out more about our service please read our Collection Policy and contact us using this email address request@geelongmums.org.
