On average, it costs us $240 to provide a disadvantaged family with all the essential items they need for their child. If the family had to buy these items new, it would cost more than $900.  These items are essential for the safety, well-being and development of the children we help.

As a not for profit who receives no formal funding, we rely on the generosity of individuals, businesses and other community groups. We can’t do it without you, and we need your help.

Please give generously and help us to continue to make a difference for families in need.

Provide a safe place for baby to sleep for $250

Dandelion believes that every child deserves somewhere safe to sleep. The prohibitive cost of cots and bassinets, mean that many families cannot afford these essential nursery items. With your help, we can change that.

A safe cot or bassinet reduces the risk of babies co-sleeping with adults and other children, sleeping in unsafe spaces and ultimately reduces the risk of SIDS, falls and suffocation. In 2021 Dandelion rehomed 436 cots and 166 bassinets with families in need and the demand for these items is growing each month. We accept cots made after 2003 but unfortunately we never receive enough to meet demand.
