Our Goal


Ends 3 Dec 2019

Karinya House is looking to purchase 8 car seats – Britax Safe and Sound Compaq – costing $375 each.  We recently were able to purchase two and they have been fantastic.

The advantages

  • Standardised seat to have in all Karinya House Service Support Vehicles to ensure familiarity for staff and volunteers with regard to installation, adjustments and placement of babies and children
  • Up to date safety features
  • Suit a larger range of baby sizes/ages – Baby can stay rear facing for longer which is safer for child
  • Easy to install
  • Easy to adjust according to individual child – Hassle free harness – no need to re-thread the harness and therefore reduces the risk of incorrect installation and harness fitment.
  • Compact – suitable for variety of cars and transporting multiple women with babies and children
  • Has active head restraint to contain and protect child’s head in a side impact crash.
  • Reversible baby insert and shoulder pads- provide further support and comfort for younger babies.
  • Cover easy to wash and dries quickly

This request came from one of our health professionals and was thoroughly researched and canvassed with the Karinya team.

This project has now been fully funded by the Lions Club of Canberra Belconnen!  Thank you to all Club Members. Photos coming soon … purchase currently underway. Woo hoo!
