About the opportunities

Day Out With The Kids

A ‘Day out with the kids’ can provide children experiencing hardship with a special opportunity to alleviate the anxiety and stress of everyday challenges and enjoy an afternoon of care free fun!
These are generally carried out during the school holidays and can include activities such as Wild Life Sydney or the Aquarium.

From $7,500. Costs include travel, entry fees, lunch, onsite support and event management support.

Working Bees

Our Children’s Family Centres and foster carers work tirelessly to provide essential, intensive support for children in our care every day. Sometimes this means other projects are pushed aside, such as gardening, painting, general maintenance or spring cleaning. We need working bees to help make these much needed improvements a reality.

Working bees are a fantastic bonding activity for your team to make a real difference to improving the facilities our Barnardos children and families rely on to provide safe and happy respite.

This is a great event for volunteers wanting to get their hands dirty!

From $5,000. Costs include supplies, lunch, onsite support and event management support.
