An organisation that strives to foster and promote inclusivity, Giving Tree runs programs that engage children, both with and without disabilities in a concurrent environment. Giving Tree provides children with disabilities a safe space where they can interact with the greater community and with children without disabilities, empowering and enabling them to be inclusive members of society. Giving Tree provides volunteers (known as ‘Captains’) with the necessary skills and knowledge required to support children (known as ‘Explorers’), both with and without a disability. Our youth-led organisation aims to
empower young adults to be disability advocates within society.
Giving Tree runs two main programs – an Explorer’s Day Camp, consisting of one-two weeks of pure fun during school holidays, and, an Explorer’s Excursion, our year-round program that takes children on engaging excursions around Melbourne.
