we care village

It takes a village to raise a child


30,000 children live in poverty throughout the Central Coast & Hunter.


Become part of the village supporting local vulnerable children who don’t have the clothes, bedding or nursery items they need. 


You can help change the story on childhood poverty for generations to come.

The We Care Village is a connected community of volunteers, people donating beautiful children’s things, businesses donating goods and services, financial supporters, caseworkers helping children, drop-off partners, knitters and sewers – hundreds of people helping every week.


But we need your regular support to survive.    


We would love to welcome you into the village so that together, we can transform local children’s lives, each and every month. 

The amount you choose to contribute is completely up to you.  


Did you know! $42 is the average amount is costs We Care Connect to provide a bundle of practical items like clothing, nappies, linen, formula and other essentials.


You can participate by nominating an amount to give each month – $10, $20, $42, $100 or specify your nominated amount.




We all come from different places and backgrounds – but we can all make a difference and change the  trajectory of these local kids’ lives. 


The We Care Village is more than just a monthly donation. We are all here because we care about the same thing – providing children living in poverty with the practical essentials they deserve. 


When We Care first started, we helped 300 children in a year – six years on, now it’s closer to 4,000 each year. 


Because of you and the We Care Village community, we keep getting closer to the day when we have fundamentally reversed the impact of childhood disadvantage. Change a child’s life by giving them their greatest practical needs – clothing, bedding and nursery items.
