Description of charity's activities and outcomes
Caroline Chisholm Society supports pregnancy, children and families. We offer support from the moment a woman learns of her pregnancy to the time her youngest child goes to school. We help women achieve a safe and nurturing environment for their children.

We offer 1/ New and pre-loved baby and maternity goods to families to alleviate the time of poverty, 2/ one-off appointments for counselling and support to empower families, and 3/ ongoing casework to support good parenting while at risk of or facing homelessness, family violence and mental health issues. We see 1000-1500 families per year, depending on funds and the complexity of client needs.

We are a grass roots agency, led by a voluntary Board focused in our local communities of Caroline Springs, Moonee Valley and Shepparton. You will find more details in our Annual Report.
