Cafs (Child & Family Services Ballarat) is proud to once again participate in this year’s 16 Days of Activism against Gender-Based Violence campaign.
The wellbeing of children, young people and their families is at the heart of everything we do. Our care is inclusive and
collaborative, and our innovative support programs are specifically designed to meet the needs of our local community.

MAKE A DONATION
At Cafs, your contribution counts.
We’ve been supporting children and families as a proudly independent organisation for nearly 160 years and, in that time, we have expanded to deliver more than 44 innovative support programs specifically designed to meet the needs of people across the Victorian Central Highlands.
It’s hard to believe that even the smallest donation could make a significant difference to someone experiencing hardship.
Just $5 could provide a new outfit from Cafs Thread Together Hub to a person in need.
Your gift, no matter the amount, will help Cafs continue to build a stronger, more resilient community.
Donations* can be made by following the links below.

We are thrilled to announce we are one of the community partners for SpringFest 2023!
Part of the proceeds from this year`s SpringFest will go towards the extraordinary Thread Together program partnering with Cafs. Our mission? To provide new clothing for those in our community who need it most.
A new outfit can do wonders. It can boost confidence for a job interview, provide warmth for children during the cold winter months, or restore dignity to someone who has had to leave everything behind due to family violence. 🧥👗👔 Cafs’ Thread Together clothing hub offers this sense of security, distributing brand-new clothing donated by generous Australian retailers to people in need.
So, when you join us at SpringFest, you`re not just celebrating the spirit of Ballarat, you`re also contributing to a cause that directly impacts our community for the better!
Let`s make SpringFest 2023 a festival of joy, community, and giving back! ❤️ #SpringFestBallarat2023 #Cafswecare #cafsthreadtogether #ThreadTogether #CommunityGiving
