About us

about-us

Dandelion Support Network is a grassroots not-for-profit that supports children and families in need.

Our team accept, sort and safety check children’s clothes and nursery items for families in need. We work with hospitals and support agencies to provide these items to the families. 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 using 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 with love ready for a new family.

Since December 2011, we have helped nearly 10,000 families and we now work with more than 200 hospitals and community service agencies to create positive change in our community.

Our team are based in the Sutherland Shire, just south of Sydney.

History

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.

Vision

Our vision is that all babies and children have access to nursery items essential for their safety, well-being and development.

Mission
