Ways to help families right now

We have received lots of requests from the community with people asking how they can help families from home right now. Here are a few ideas….


Clean out your wardrobe

Stay active at home by cleaning out your wardrobe and donating your pre-loved clothing and household goods to Red Nose.

Red Nose Clothing Collection is a social enterprise within Red Nose. We work with partners in Victoria and South Australia to collect and recycle pre-loved clothes and household items.The proceeds are then reinvested into our research and education programs and support services for families impacted by the death of a baby or child.

Sort your closet now ready for when our Collection services open up again soon.

Become a peer supporter or volunteer

Red Nose is currently recruiting up to 50 new Peer Supporters to help provide support via our 24/7 Support Line and online services. Our Peer Supporters are trained volunteers who use their own experience of grief following the loss of a baby or child to help other grieving parents navigate their journey of grief.

Make a donation

Make a donation today to help keep our services open and free. Coronavirus is having an unprecedented impact on Red Nose and its community, with significantly increased demand for services against a backdrop of an 80 per cent reduction in income.

We are doing everything we can weather this storm, but we need your help to keep as many of our services as possible open and free for families. Your support will help to provide a vital lifeline for grieving families, and families with young children through this crisis.
