Total Funds Raised

Thank you StreetSmart Australia, this grant will enable Roundabout Canberra to provide babies and young children in need with essential toiletries such as nappies, wipes and formula through our network of over 90 social services agencies in the Capital Region. Roundabout Canberra accepts donations of new and pre-loved baby and children’s items. As a grassroots charity powered by Volunteers, we are very grateful for community support to enable us to continue this wonderful service.

We’ve seen a drop in donations over the past 18 months so this grant from StreetSmart comes at the right time. We are seeing more people seeking help with basic essentials and any contribution helps us extend our outreach to the vulnerable people in our community. Thank you to everyone who has contributed and made this support possible.

The past 12 months have been very tough for so many in our community. Rough Edges has been providing food relief for more people than ever before. This donation from StreetSmart and the cafes and supporters will be directed to our Food Relief program, and will mean we can supplement prepared meals with fresh produce, to ensure that our patrons have access to healthy food options as well as warm drinks and meals.

The majority of the young women we support will have experienced trauma in childhood and will have limited housing options. The Cocoon will provide safe, affordable and supported accommodation to 16 young women who are exiting homelessness or out-of-home-care. The grant will be used to set the rooms up for the young women, which will include purchasing kitchenware, furnishings and general household items.

Bridge It

COVID saw the cancellation of our flagship fundraising event in 2020, which reduced our yearly fundraising by circa $100k

Clients are in crisis accommodation longer due to a lack of affordable rentals and social housing.

We were planning for an event for community fundraising in November and this was unable to proceed. Also an event to be held by a corporate partner didn't proceed due to lockdown. As such our fundraising revenue has decreased due to COVID-19.

Our fundraising has decreased as we offer venue hire to community organisations and this has been discontinued until further notice.

These small community grants are vital.
