Santa's Workshop

Santa’s Workshop provides a unique opportunity for members of the community to work together to support families throughout the year. As a Communicare initiative, Santa’s Workshop offers social inclusion for people with a wide range of backgrounds and age groups.

At Santa's Workshop, our team of volunteers work together to support each other, share and learn skills and build relationships. Santa's Workshop has been supporting families in Western Australia for over 20 years, through provision of toys to local community organisations, vulnerable families and those in need.

At Santa’s Workshop, volunteers come together with a unique purpose of helping others. They work throughout the year to provide toys to the local community, while building strong connections with each other, highlighting social responsibility, reinforcing and transferring skills  and further developing capacity.

The sense of teamwork and peer support is an important part of Santa’s Workshop and allows for enhancement of community engagement and inclusion opportunities.
