Supporting Children and Families


bestchance wants all children, families and individuals to thrive in their community. We believe the Early Years are the building blocks for later life so we are driven to get in early to change life trajectories through inclusive and relationally-based education. 

Our services are delivered to over 6,000 children and 3,600 families. Inevitably, there are families who need extra help when times are tough. Families with isoated parents from a cultural and linguistically diverse background, families with children who have physical or intellectual diagnoses, families facing financial hardship or children who have been effected by trauma or emergency.


Help us to get in early and support these families. Some of the many purposes towards which your donation could be directed include:

- Fee relief for families and individuals during times of difficulty or where a child is at risk

- Support services for recent migrants, single parent families and isolated parents with mental health issues

- Intervention services for babies and children aged 0-6 with disabilities, developmental delays and additional needs

- Intervention services for a child in prep to grade 4 with social, emotional or behavioural issues

- Emergency relief services which provide food aid and material aid for families

- A strong and caring volunteer program which offers opportunity for community participation and reduces social isolation.

If you are able to, please consider supporting our services.
