Create a Village
Staff Departing

A village is a one-stop, online shop, for the person you care about.

They can use their Village Voucher across a range of helpful services and products. Like some home cooked meals, delivered! Perhaps someone to look after the new baby while they have a nap! Or how about an angel who appears to make that huge pile of washing disappear? A cleaner who could visit once, or once a week! The list goes on..

Gifts for new parents

It's the magic answer to the difficult question: "How can I help?"

They redeem their voucher for all the things they really need, at the times they really need them. Spirits will be lifted (literally, if you’re anything like us). Cue relief and warm glow all around.

  • "My work and family arranged a village when I had my first child via caesarean and my partner had to go straight back to work. It was fabulous to be able to arrange a cleaner while I had some recovery time."

    Steph  — 

    Melbourne

  • "It Takes a Village helped us continue with a semi-normal life. In the weeks we ran out of food or when we didn’t have time to clean the house or do the laundry, The Village was always there for us"

    Chris  —

  • "As the office manager in a large company, It Takes a Village has become my go-to when our employees welcome a new baby. It's the most helpful gift we can give as an organisation looking to support our employees and reduce our environmental impact"

    Fiona  —

  • "Ivy was my 3rd baby and the last thing I needed was another brand-new swaddle or teddy bear. I set up a Village instead of a baby registry, so the gifts from our friends turned into a cleaner for the first few months which REALLY helped us out"

  • Sittr

    Sittr is a trusted service for parents and families which aims to simplify the search for a babysitter.

     

    Like many, James and Samantha – a husband & wife team and the founders of Sittr – didn’t have a village of support, and personally felt the struggle of trying to find care for their loved ones. In a world where ordering transport, booking accommodation and even staying up to date with loved ones can all be done online, finding childcare was still a real pain point.

     

    That’s where Sittr was born.

     

    Families deserve a better way to find child carers whether they are looking for a full time nanny, a casual babysitter or a night out while on holidays. Sittr allows parents to instantly book and pay for a trusted, reliable babysitter.
