Do you have an abundance of baby, toddler and children’s clothing that you simply don’t need anymore? With so many Perth families in need, whether it be through financial hardship, domestic violence and other family issues, or those who are new to Perth, demand for unwanted items in good condition is always high.

So why not give away your unused goods to the people who need them most? Perth Mums Group has put together a list of some of the places in Perth who are always in need of kids clothing and baby and kids items for the most vulnerable people in our communities.
