If you have any questions about these please contact Lisa on 9576 4601. 


While we are working to connect people as best we can, one of the simplest and easiest things that WE CAN ALL DO is get out into your street/neighbourhood (while observing requirements for social distancing), introduce yourself to your neighbours and talk about how you can help each other.  Start a conversations by dropping a #viralkindness cad into your neighbours mail box or knock on the door (and chat through the front window).  By connecting with those who live close tous, or in our neighbourhoods, we are building a sense of belonging and helping each other through these uncertain times.  Keep spreading kindness everyone.  #KindnessPandemic.

External services 

Many people across our community access services to assist with home help, nursing care, respite services and support programs to name a few. If you receive support from an organisation, and are unsure of any changes to the support being provided during this time, please contact the service provider directly.
