Girls and Women Thriving


Want to help us continue to make a difference in the lives of Canberrans?

You can contribute to ensuring that all women, children and families in Canberra have the essential supports and resources that everyone needs to live.

Your donation will help to:

  • Ensure that families have access to food by keeping our community pantry at Lanyon stocked with a variety of staples
  • Help set a family up with essential household items after experiencing housing stress and uncertainty
  • Give children access to items they need for healthy growth and development, including school supplies, toys, and social supports
  • Give women, children and families access to counselling and other support services.
