Get involved with Pyjama Day to support foster kids with BIG dreams!

Wear your PJ's and raise funds for kids in care

Why we exist 

We provide children and young people in foster care the opportunity to change the direction of their lives with learning, life skills and confidence.

Through our Love of Learning program, volunteers called 'Pyjama Angels' are recruited, screened, trained and then matched with a child in care and spend time with them once a week, focusing on learning-based activities. Pyjama Angels read books aloud with their child, play educational games and help children with their homework.

Most importantly, the volunteers give foster children a chance to reach their life potential, despite a fragile start

Children in care have the lowest education outcomes nationally. By improving their learning skills, we are making a positive, life-long impact.

How we help

Love of Learning

We provide one-on-one mentoring programs for children and young people in care, with the goal of empowering them to reach their full potential.

Our Impact

Since 2004, we have been working to break the cycle of disadvantage and to positively impact the inequitable life trajectories for children and young people from an out of home care background.
