Our network was established by two mothers who noticed an opportunity to make a difference. Together they enhanced the great work of the community services industry in supporting vulnerable families by being able to provide material goods to those families. From this desire to make a difference, combined with a passion for sustainability, Dandelion was born.
Our volunteers accept, sort and safety check children’s clothes and nursery items for families in need, through hospitals and support agencies. We receive no government funding for the services we provide and rely on the generosity of the community and our supporters to continue our work.
All the goods are processed by volunteers who follow high quality assurance standards so that they can be enjoyed by their new owner. Once the items are ready for their new home they are packed up with love ready for a new family.
Our team are based in the Sutherland Shire, just south of Sydney.
Since December 2011, we have helped more than 4,500 families and we now work with more than 120 hospitals and community service agencies to create positive change in our community.
Our vision is that all babies and children have access to nursery items essential for their safety, well-being and development.
To be a leading community organisation, partnering with like-minded agencies to make a difference for families in need, whilst reducing our environmental footprint.
