About Trust in Kids

Trust In Kids provides a timely boost to the most vulnerable kids and young people in our local community when there is nowhere left to turn.

Almost 1 in 5 Australian kids are living in poverty. There is a real need in our community to give local kids a ‘fair go’ and receive everyday opportunities they’d otherwise miss out on.

Some kids need help with basic necessities, such as bedding and furniture, other times it’s assistance with school costs, music, dance, or swimming lessons.

Your support can make a massive difference to a vulnerable child’s development, and help make them feel valued by our community.

Every cent you donate is spent on local kids and is tax deductible.
