How you can help

15As a not-for-profit organisation Kids Are Kids! relies on individual, community and corporate fundraising support to keep services affordable for families.

This support may be in the form of direct financial assistance through donations, membership, grants to subsidise specific programs, fundraising or volunteering.

Kids Are Kids! Is an endorsed Public Benevolent Institution (PBI) and has Deductible Gift Recipient (DGR) status so any donation over $2 is tax deductible.

Support our Mobile Therapy Service

This brand new initiative supports high-need communities lacking in services to receive locally provided therapy services. The Mobile Therapy Service costs approximately $10,000 to run each year and financial support is critical to the provision of services to children.

Support our Centre Expansion Program

We are desperately short of space at our Centre in Bateman. We have been at our Bateman premises since 1997; and whilst small improvements have been made along the way we are always in need of funds to assist in the creation of additional therapy and administration areas to help service more families.

Support our Family Services Program

Kids are Kids! Family Services Program aims to provide informative, inspiring and motivating seminars and workshops for families to help families with grief, resilience, relationships and coping skills. Your financial contribution to this program will enable financially disadvantaged families to attend these events, learn new skills, make new friends and cope with the everyday demands of family life.

Sponsor a child to receive a Therapy Scholarship

An annual Therapy Scholarships will provide up to 6-months of therapy to a disadvantaged child. A Silver Therapy Scholarship is valued at $2000 and a Gold Therapy Scholarship is valued at $4000.

Personal Volunteering

You may have particular knowledge & skills that you are willing to share which could be of great benefit to Kids Are Kids! You may like to give your time on a one off or regular basis to assist staff with some of the everyday jobs involved in running the services & maintaining the centre.

Corporate Volunteering Events

Your organisation may like to hold a team building event where 5-20 staff complete a whole or half day project at Kids Are Kids! Activities are based around upgrading our tired premises and can range from painting or gardening to installing a flat-pack kitchen!


Kids Are Kids! relies heavily on fundraising events through the year to support the cost of service delivery. We hold various events and initiatives through the year, such as our Wine and Cheese Evening, Sausage Sizzles, Gala Dinner Event, Cadbury Easter Chocolate Fundraising,  Entertainment Book and other activities as the opportunities arise to raise funds. We are always looking for people with new & dynamic ideas plus the “know how” make these events happen. Please contact us should you have any suggestions regarding products or services that may be able to assist us in our fundraising efforts.

In the month of February only, you can help us with the opportunity to win the grand prize of $300! Simply head to Grill’d Applecross during February for a burger and pop your Local Matters token in their jar. The group with the most tokens at the end of the month receives the largest donation. It’s a simple (and delicious) way to show your support! You’ll find us on a jar at Grill’d Applecross, 18 Risely Street, Ardross. Opening Hours are 11am – 10pm Thursday to Saturday and 11am – 9:30pm Sunday to Wednesday.

We thank everyone who supported us in the yearly Easter fundraising activity. Together, we managed to sell 80 Cadbury boxes, each box containing 20 mixed bags of mini Caramello, Dairy Milk and Crunchie eggs. Please contact Heidi on 9313 6566 for direct transfer details or call into the centre to deliver your funds raised. Happy Easter!
