Doorstep Deliveries of Essential Goods
Intentional conversations about someone's wellbeing. A service designed to connect with vulnerable community members through meaningful conversation, therapeutic techniques and safe questions as trained by Lifeline Australia to help clients feel a sense of connection and belonging within their community and to encourage safe and helpful resources to maintain good mental, emotional and physical health.
R U OK Check in Conversations
Intentional mental health and wellbeing conversation check-ups at the doorstep of the most vulnerable in our community. These visits support community members who feel isolated and are not able to participate in the mental health check-ups and connection points that would normally be a part of their weekly support network due to Covid-19. Doorstep engagement is a holistic approach as it also allows us to check on the physical wellbeing of people and their families within their home environment.

Mentors spend time with their mentees once a fortnight, hanging out, doing life activities together, encouraging and supporting them in whatever is happening in their life.
