Wombat's Wish
Victoria's leading grief support service for children and young people who have experienced the death of a parent


Wombat’s Wish is Victoria’s leading support service for parentally bereaved children and young people.

We want to make sure that they don’t have to go through their grief alone – and you can help us, help them.

Wombat’s Wish only survives with financial support from people just like you, and your kind donations.

We do not receive any Government funding and we do not charge for the services we provide to children, young people, and their families.

Wombat’s Wish was established as a charity in 2005 and is predominantly operated by community volunteers. We are a registered Deductible Gift Recipient (DGR), this means every donation over $2 is tax deductible for the donor.

Every dollar donated goes towards providing direct services and support to a child in grief.
