Donate Material Goods

Thank you for your generosity towards people seeking asylum.

Where possible the Asylum Seekers Centre distributes material donations to people in Sydney. However, due to our limited storage space and resources, we are not able to accept all goods offered to us.

Below is a list of the items we are currently able to accept and some alternative options for your support.

We appreciate you working with us to meet the needs of people in our community.

Our current material needs

  • Baby Wipes: Little One’s Baby Wipes
  • Nappies: Little One’s Nappy Pants (all sizes)
  • Active toys e.g. skipping ropes

Please email fundraising@asylumseekerscentre.org.au to receive delivery instructions.

These goods will be distributed at our next Family Day on 29 April 2024 in our Auburn hub.

Items we do not accept

Furniture, household goods, books, casual clothes

We often call on the organisations below to provide for those we support, when we don’t have the room to store such items ourselves.

Professional clothing

You can redirect any professional clothing to the following organisations:

More ways to give

Donate food

After talking with the people we support, we have moved from a foodbank to a voucher system that allows people dignity and freedom of choice to buy their own groceries, as well as ensuring that they can purchase culturally appropriate food.

Donate to our food program or send us Coles and Woolworths gift vouchers.

Donate to our food program

Donate a device

Devices (mobile phones, laptops and tablets) are essential for people to keep connected to the internet, to friends and family, to work and to the community.
