How to Help

Become a volunteer carer or mentor

Any adult can apply to become a carer with us. Our children come from struggling families who often lack a strong support network. We match all referred children with a carer or mentor for regular visits or catch ups, to give them the opportunity to share new experiences with an extra role model who can provide a nurturing and stable relationship over time. For further details, see our Become a Carer or Mentor page.

Join the Q Can Crew

Each month the people at Qantas collect all of the recyclable items that Qantas flies into Adelaide and recycle them to raise funds in support of Time for Kids. Recycling events occur on the second Sunday of every month, from 10am to lunchtime, at the Qantas catering buildings. Come along with the whole family once a month, or once every six months, and enjoy the regular sausage sizzle at the end.  Event information is posted regularly on their facebook so be sure to like their page.

Christmas gifting

Every year, we collect gifts and raise funds to provide our children with Christmas presents and their families with food aid, to ensure that every child in our program has a chance at a brighter Christmas. If you are interested in arranging a Christmas gift drive at your work or among friends, refer to our Christmas Gift Donations page.
