In these unprecedented times of social distancing we do not need to feel isolated and alone.
As the outbreak of COVID-19 impacts Australian communities, the focus is on protecting those who are vulnerable or at risk. Social distancing can create a sense of loneliness, particularly if we live by ourselves and are unable to get out for essential items.
CatholicCare and the Parishes of the Sydney Archdiocese are here to support vulnerable people in our local communities during lockdown. We can connect local volunteers to people who need help with their shopping and errands or even just for a regular friendly chat over the phone.
If you, or someone you know, could use a little help during this time, CCareline 13 18 19 can connect you with a local volunteer from your community.
CCareline 13 18 19 is a free and confidential* helpline for counselling, relationships, parenting, ageing, disabilities, addictions and mental health.
CCareline is here to help. Call 13 18 19 Monday to Friday 8am to 6pm.
*unless there is a risk of harm to you or others.
