Mums Supporting Families in Need

Mums Supporting Families In Need is a fully volunteer-run not for profit charity providing Melbourne’s most disadvantaged families with essential material aid, as we believe no child should go without essentials.

Aid is predominantly nursery focussed, including cots, prams, and car seats, so that babies and young children can sleep and travel safely. MSFIN provide a range of essential baby care items including high chairs, change tables, and safety items as well as consumables like nappies and wipes. They also provide clothing, linen, footwear, toiletries and food hampers for the entire family.

All aid is provided via referral at no cost to the family or referring agency. In November 2019, Mums Supporting Families In Need will be celebrating their 7th birthday.

During their time supporting families in crisis, MSFIN have assisted well over 20,000 families. They consistently support more than 150 different families each month with their daily needs to recover from circumstantial crises. Their 2018 Christmas appeal provided quality fun and educational Christmas gifts to over 3,500 families who would otherwise not have been able to provide their children with a Christmas celebration.

New volunteers are always welcome at our Seaford warehouse which is open Mondays, Tuesdays, Thursdays and Fridays between 10-3pm. Casual volunteers are welcome as no commitment is required, as well as those who may be interested in getting more involved.
