Early Links Supporting Inclusion



Trivia Night 2023

Your donation

We ask for your help to create a fantastic youth hub for the young people that we support. The funds raised will be used to furnish the youth hub to create a fun and welcoming environment in which our young people feel at home.

About the youth hub

Our vision for the hub is an area specifically designed for our youth groups featuring activity zones, games rooms and sensory spaces. We want our young people to feel the hub is theirs and feel comfortable enough there to be themselves.

    The Perfect Hub

    We asked our young people to tell us what their perfect youth hub should include. Their wishlist includes items such as a ping pong table, music speakers, a basketball hoop and, of course, Xbox and PlayStation.

    Our trivia night in 2022 was a great success with over 90 people in attendance and over $8,000 raised on the night to fund our playgroups.
