Keep the magic of Christmas alive. 

Following a tumultuous year, Christmas 2020 will be unlike any other due to the unique challenges COVID-19 has brought upon us. 

This year, more than ever, more families have faced more challenges, the are in desperate need and experiencing crisis like never before. 

  • Families struggling to obtain every day essentials and who are on the brink of homelessness.
  • Women and children trapped by financial and other chronic pressures in dreadfully neglectful, abusive and violent relationships. 
  • People living with disability who are more isolated and vulnerable due to the consequence of the pandemic. 

Not to mention the additional and crippling mental health implications felt by so many every single day.

Each year we work with 20,000 plus people to assist them to feel safer and more supported. 

Please join with us in showing that our community spirit is still thriving, despite the hardships of the pandemic. 

These are tough times, but together we can keep the magic of Christmas alive.

 
 

Hear from some of the people we've helped

(Through Kids on Track) I learnt more about how drugs and alcohol affect our bodies. I don't want to end up the same way as Dad so I can now care for my body and make better decisions than what he did.

Resilience for Life has been nothing short of wonderful for me, and enormously empowering. I am feeling so much more optimistic and confident in myself, my driving and taking care of my husband.

My (Windermere) counsellor has been one of the most important supports I have had throughout this whole process. She is amazing. I now see things from a completely different perspective.

I am on the lookout now too - next time I am in a relationship, I will be able to recognise the signs of domestic violence and I won’t let myself get stuck in that sort of position again.”
