Our current partners

Support from the community helps The Infants’ Home to improve and enhace our programs for children and families, and in particular, helps to make a difference in the lives of children and families living in vulnerable circumstances or with complex needs.

Each year we receive many generous contributions from corporations, philanthropic organisations, governments, community groups, businesses and individuals.

We are grateful for support in all it's forms: grant funding, corporate and community partnerships, fundraising events, cash donations, products and services, goods in kind, and volunteering.

Corporate volunteers

Many individuals donate their time and energy to The Infants' Home through our corporate volunteering program.

Almost 600 volunteers worked with us on 67 different days throughout 2016 to help maintain our equipment and beautiful grounds, create resources for children, support events, and contribute to a clean and pleasant environment for staff, children and families. 

Additionally Goldman Sachs provide ongoing support for the maintenance of The Infants' Home's many sandpits in our playgrounds, through their CommunityTeamWorks Grants. Each year teams of volunteers haul old sand out of our sand pits and top it up with lovely fresh new sand. See the story on their efforts in 2015 here. We are thrilled that they will help us do this all again in 2017.
