B4VK launch - providing stronger support to children in home based care




















School Essentials Packs Pilot Program

We are so pleased to be supporting Backpacks for Vic Kids (B4VK) new initiative, offering individualised school supplies packs to children and young people in OOHC in Victoria. B4VK is a Victorian based charity founded in 2014, turning donated funds and goods into material relief of children entering emergency or out of home care. So far, B4VK has delivered over $3M worth of material aid to kids in VIC, TAS and NSW.
B4VK is excited to be launching a new initiative this week offering school aged children in out of home care much needed school supplies and stationery.

You may know of B4VK through their My Essentials (ME) Packs program providing backpacks full of supplies for children entering care. B4VK endeavour to supply ME packs as a matter of urgency to children recently displaced. Whilst the toiletries, clothing and comfort items are vital material aid, receiving these packs also provides priceless support and dignity to the children being placed into care.
B4VK’s new School Essentials (SE) Packs initiative is set to offer stronger support to children in out of home care with their school readiness through the provision of much needed stationery, lunch boxes and other essential school supplies. Preparedness helps to ensure engagement in education and a feeling of equality.
