Good Beginnings

Good Beginnings Australia (GBA) is a national charity, building better outcomes for children in vulnerable communities to ensure every child has the chance for a good beginning in life.

The Goodman Foundation has provided essential funding for five vehicles used by GBA Early Childhood and Family Support workers to deliver their programmes. 

"The five vehicles Goodman have funded for Good Beginnings have had an amazing impact. They have been used to support various key programmes throughout Australia, including in Hobart, Sydney, Townsville, Palmerston and Latrobe. Even the children have told us they approve of the bright and colourful artwork on the cars. We thank Goodman for making a major difference to children and families across Australia over the past year” - Jane Meyer Tucker, CEO, Good Beginnings Australia.

To assist with the critical capacity needs of Good Beginnings following their rapid growth and to support the health and wellbeing of Good Beginnings staff, Goodman Foundation agreed in 2013 to support Good Beginnings with funding support and fit-out of their new office premises at Pyrmont, Sydney. This represented a significant milestone for the organisation and provided them with the capacity to continue their growth and support of Australia’s children and parents.

Each year, Goodman staff purchase Christmas gifts for disadvantaged children in the “Good Toy Drive” which Good Beginnings distribute to children in disadvantaged communities ensuring Christmas cheer reaches those less privileged.
