Donate to ConnectGroups
Not all of our programs and services receive government funding and some depend entirely on generous donations from the public and corporate partnerships. Your support can help us to continue supporting Support Groups in the community and reaching more individuals, families, and carers in need.
WHAT YOUR DONATION COULD CONTRIBUTE TO:
Assisting Support Groups to stay socially connected
As a result of Covid-19, many Support Groups have been unable to provide their regular face-to-face meetings, and are still unable to meet due to health risks. These meetings help people with chronic and genetic health conditions, mental health conditions, and people who have experienced other life adversities, to keep informed and educated on how to manage their conditions, to share experience, and to stay mentally healthy. ConnectGroups is providing intense support to groups to help them transition to an online platform where they can continue providing support to their members, many of whom rely on this regular support and interaction with others who share similar experience.
Hand to Heart – Social connections for older people
Many older people live alone and may become disconnected from the community following the loss of a loved-one, changes to lifestyle due to injury or ill health or barriers coming from a culturally diverse background. The Hand to Heart Program helps connect isolated seniors in the Melville region with local services, activities and groups to lead a happier, healthier and safer life. Find out more…
