Diamond Valley Community Support (DVCS) is very excited to announce its new KidsAssist program which aims to support needy families with education expenses, and provide a pathway for schools to refer families and children who require financial assistance.


All children should have the ability to fully participate in school life regardless of their parents’ financial situation, yet the rising cost of school education has resulted in some children being singled out or excluded from opportunities to learn and grow, and that’s where KidsAssist comes in.


Eligible families will be able to seek KidsAssist funding for school related expenses including Stationery, Text Books, Electronic Devices, Excursions and Camps, School Sports and other essential school items and activities. The following Schools have been invited to participate in a pilot program commencing 1st May 2018.

  • Diamond Creek Primary School

  • Diamond Creek East Primary School

  • Sacred Heart Catholic School Diamond Creek

  • Streeton Primary School

  • Macleod College

  • Rosanna Primary School

  • Rosanna Golf Links Primary School

Our vision is to deliver KidsAssist through 20+ schools in Nillumbik and Banyule by 2020. You can help support a child in school by donating to KidsAssist today. 


100% of your KidsAssist donation will assist families pay for school expenses, and all donations are Tax Deductible.
