Community support has always been an important part of Time for Kids’ success, ever since we were established by William and Betty Scales in 1960.

As need for our program increases, so does our need for resources. We strive to place every child referred to Time for Kids with a caring volunteer as quickly as possible. To do this, we need the financial support of individuals and organisations who are as committed as we are to making a lifelong positive difference to children’s lives.

Time for Kids is fortunate to enjoy the financial support of individuals and organisations through direct donation.  This includes those who lack the time to volunteer as a carer but would like to contribute to a child’s successful placement within the program. Making a regular donation can make a world of difference to the children in our community.

There are a range of ways that you can provide financial support to Time for Kids, read on to find out what suits you.
