We are providing assistance to members of the community facing unprecedented challenges and increasing isolation due to COVID-19.
The Neighbour to Neighbour project aims to support communities at high risk of being impacted by the threats of COVID-19, including seniors, people with a disability, people from culturally and linguistically diverse (CALD) backgrounds and Indigenous people.
Through the Neighbour to Neighbour initiative, we can all look out for each other and show a little kindness.

Can you help your neighbour?
We are looking for volunteers to help seniors and vulnerable people who are socially isolated in our local community.
Whether it’s helping someone with their grocery shopping and dog walking or other errands – any little assistance you can offer will go a long way for someone in need.
Please fill out this short online form to register as a volunteer and we will put you in direct contact with residents in your area requesting assistance. The volunteer sign-up forms are also available in printed format and will be available across the community.
When volunteering your time, please remember that COVID-19 is contagious. Please take every precaution to ensure you are spreading only kindness. Avoid physical contact (2m distance) and wash your hands regularly.
