Very Special Kids Society

Perfect for those with a passion for performing social justice for local families, and a desire for meeting similarly wonderful people!

Very Special Kids Society spreads the work and joy of Very Special Kids, a children’s charity that helps approximately 850 families across Victoria who have a child in a life-threatening condition, with ongoing support from diagnosis all the way through to recovery or bereavement.

Our society’s close-knit and driven membership works as a family, contributing to both the charity’s established events as well as our own fundraising initiatives.

Check out our Facebook page and Very Special Kids’ website.
