HOW are you and your family going during COVID-19?
If you are worried about someone in isolation, get in touch with The Neighbourhood Centre.
We currently provide support calls to many people across the Central West, Far West and Orana region.
Our phone calls let people know they are not alone and that someone cares. We can check that they are safe and well and connect them to helpful services and programs in our community that can improve someone's quality of life.
Currently we are looking for volunteers to help us in many different roles. We welcome your help!
Refugee Week is this week and this year the theme is the year of welcome.
Refugee Week is Australia's peak annual activity to raise awareness about the issues affecting refugees and celebrate the positive contributions made by refugees to Australian society.
Originally celebrated in 1986, Refugee Week coincides with World Refugee Day (June 20).
The Neighbourhood Centre is offering all our programs online, so if you are interested in doing Chair Yoga you can join in every Friday at the new time of 10am via our Facebook page.
If you are the carer for your loved one with dementia, you can be a part of our dementia café video call every Wednesday from 10am to noon.
If you have a son, husband, brother or father in your life who you think could benefit from connecting with other men to talk about issues in their life and increase their social connection, then join our Men Connect via Zoom every Monday from 6.30pm to 8.30pm.
TNC is now able to offer some of its programs face to face again. Call us for details.
