Because We Care

With the State of Victoria currently declared a state of disaster, all levels of government are working on trying to alleviate the physical, emotional and financial toll this is taking on people across our nation.

This of course will take time but with the impact of COVID-19 being felt now, the Give a Care team is aware that clients and their families need immediate assistance. In view of this, we have launched ‘Because We Care’, a short-term campaign to assist in the community where we can. 

This campaign will consist of arranging deliveries of fresh produce and non-perishable staple items to some of the most vulnerable of Give a Care clients.

Many people living with a disability endure social isolation on a daily-basis, but this has been further heightened by COVID-19 lockdown restrictions.

This is a difficult time for all, but it presents an opportunity for us to be creative, and find new ways in which we can interact with others, meet new people and have fun.

Connecting Couches @ Give a Care delivers a range of online activities via Zoom to provide people of all abilities with the opportunity to try out new hobbies from the comfort of their own home. Choose from accessible yoga, drumming, art, dance and music. There is something for everyone to enjoy. All sessions will run for 30 minutes on the day and time indicated.  

Events

Due to COVID-19 all our free social events have been cancelled.  We look forward to bringing you new events post-COVID-19.  In the meantime, we invite you to join Connecting Couches, our free online activities program.

Stay Safe Friends
