Clothing and essentials

In Victoria, we’re experiencing a range of crises including poverty, food insecurity, in addition to the cost-of-living and mortgage stress.

Meet Ted, a father of four who, like many other Victorians, found himself at a crossroads not long ago. His partner's workplace accident left her in pain and immobile, and Ted became her primary carer, transitioning from a tradesman in heavy industry to managing the household. The financial strain became overwhelming, especially with the growing needs of their four children.

"We went from being able to manage when I was working to having next to nothing when I became a carer. I want my kids to experience life and not struggle the way I do”, Ted says.

Your contribution is not just a donation; it is an investment in breaking the cycle of disadvantage students in Victoria and providing opportunities for building a brighter future.
