How you can help our causes

Australian DIY Families Institute services the southern villages of the Southern Highlands. Since the 2019 bushfires, and espedcially during the COVID-19 pandemic, there has been a very real lack of support to these areas. When you give or support us, you are making a very tangible impact in the lives of sole-parent families in crisis in this region.

Essential Services

We service Bundanoon to South Marulan and are able to directly assist now with non-perishable food hampers. If you know someone in need, please refer them to us and we will assist or refer them to organisations that are able.
