Time for Kids is a unique program in South Australia that supports children and families by extending their family and community connections. For almost 60 years, Time for Kids has helped thousands of children and families find support and belonging through meaningful carer and mentor relationships.

You can make a difference to the children in our program by collecting gifts to donate at Easter or Christmas, volunteering your time, or making a donation online.

 ‘A big part of the work we do at Time for Kids is placing children who are dealing with multiple complexities in their lives and the lives of their families with committed, ongoing and treasured carer and mentor relationships. Your support means a lot to the kids in this program.’ Nikki Hartmann, Time for Kids Program Manager.
