Support our Warehouse Appeal!

Did you know that West Welcome Wagon is a 100% volunteer run charity? Our volunteers dedicate their time and efforts into making sure that West Welcome Wagon runs as efficiently as possible to ensure we can continue supporting Asylum Seekers in Melbourne’s West.

To do this, we need to keep our warehouse open which we desperately require funds for. This is why our fundraising and events are so vital for us. They help us raise money to keep our warehouse operating!

Please help if you can by donating directly to West Welcome Wagon, or supporting us in our fundraising efforts you will see below.

From the team at West Welcome Wagon, Thank you for your support!


Community Pitch Night, SeddonSeddon-CB-Logo-Suite-75x44-Burg

On Wednesday 17th May, the Seddon Community Bank Branch combined its resources and engaged with local businesses to offer local organisations the chance to ‘pitch’ their project for a chance to secure funding.

WWW were thrilled to have the opportunity to participate in this annual event and were very proud recipients of $1,400 worth of donations.

The funds will be used to help pay the rent for our warehouse – our new home and centre of our operations. The warehouse is absolutely vital for WWW to be able to continue to support the growing number of asylum seekers in Melbourne’s west. Without it we would be unable to accept, sort, store and distribute the donations offered up by our generous community. We are so grateful to the organisations that donated to get us closer to our fundraising goal of a year’s rent for the warehouse:
