The Venny caters for the young children of Kensington and surrounding suburbs, particularly disadvantaged, at risk and vulnerable children. For 35 years, the Venny has been offering children better things to do, a sense of place and purpose and somewhere to safely play and occupy their time in a creative, positive and productive manner. The Venny early intervention programs help to create a functional future for children building an inclusive community one child at a time! We connect children to something greater than themselves…to each other and their Kensington community.

With your help in the last year the Venny has provided 1581 bags of food and fresh food to children and families through the lockdown. We distributed supported play and activity pack for children who experienced the lockdown towers and we helped children and families keep accessing education by providing headset, support and advocacy. 

The Venny is deeply connected in the community, children choose us, they play freely and we are here to help when help is needed. Your support is vital in making sure that help is right there when it needs to be, on the ground vital and immediate

In the coming months we will be working directly at the base of the towers that experienced lockdowns in Flemington and North Melbourne in addition to our longstanding risk taking playground in Kensington. The PlayBlocks project brings the Venny play experience direct to those children and young people. 

Be part of supporting the play led recovery that keeps our children and young people healthy and well as they recover from the traumas and impact of COVID and the towers lockdown.
