About We Care Connect
With We Care you will be supporting vulnerable children in our Central Coast community with the care & safety items they need. There are over 10,000 local children living in poverty; children fleeing domestic violence and starting again with nothing; grandmothers left literally holding the baby; very young parents with poor education and no family support; and low income families with major medical issues.
We are an active and rapidly growing volunteer-based registered children’s charity, and last year we were privileged to win the Central Coast Volunteer Team of the Year Award.
We collect and sort community donations of pre-loved children’s items and distribute these to families in need through the professional network of community centres and family support agencies. Our volunteers prepare the support packages requested by case workers for individual families that can include clothes, nappies, bed linen, bassinets, cots, prams, car seats, baby baths, toys, books, craft packs, maternity items and toiletries. Some families need only emergency help, others may be facing long-term disadvantage. We network with over 180 community case workers.
We have many volunteer opportunities and would love to welcome you to join our amazing team.Our main work is sorting children's clothes, selecting the best and preparing support packs. We love taking care to makes these packs as individual and personal as possible, selecting just the right accessories and extra to make them a special gift from a community saying 'no' to poverty and marginalization.
Our operational base is in Wyong.
