Unconditional love and kindness are the keys to a resilient community. At the best of times things can get stressful and anxiety can spiral out of control. That is when we all need someone to talk to and gain a fresh perspective on things. Who better than a friend, neighbour, or local person with a big heart, who is willing to listen and help. We have a number of caring & trained local volunteers, who are willing to help support people in the community. While we are not able to get physically close due to the current COVID-19 alert, there are still opportunities to connect over the phone or internet. People might feel apprehensive to call a stranger on a generic support line, but we are all locals, who are here for each other, no matter how large or small the situation.
If you or someone you know needs a LOCAL PERSON or maybe a TRAINED COUNSELLOR to engage with then please email or phone us.
