We know that Covid-19 is creating all sorts of challenges for different people; with a range of needs falling through the gaps of current service provisions. Counterpoint Community Services is excited to announce that we will be rolling out our Flexible Errand Project soon to help those that are finding it particularly tough. Funded by the City of Sydney as part of the City’s Community Service’s Grant (Covid-19), the Flexible Errand Project consists of a team of ‘mates’ to support those eligible with a range of services including:
• Job seeking assistance
• Emotional and counselling support
• Collection of essential shopping, medicines and other household items
• Help with navigating and accessing on line services
• Support and wellbeing check and assistance to access other supports
• Assistance with small tasks around the house
• Support for personal growth, education and development.
Eligibility: The project is based on priority need for those who live in the City of Sydney’s LGA and are significantly affected by Covid-19 and have no access to other practical assistance such as My Age Care.
Although the project is coming soon, we are now accepting inquiries and our friendly staff will conduct an assessment over the phone. If you do not meet the eligibility criteria, our staff will determine the best way to assist you and may refer you to a more appropriate service.
If you or anyone you know is in need of assistance, kindly call 02 9698 9569 or email email@example.com … See MoreSee Less

The NSW Government is strongly encouraging NSW citizens to wear a mask in high-risk settings to help prevent the spread of COVID-19 in NSW.
Wearing a face mask provides an additional physical barrier to protect the community and help reduce community transmission. Continue to practise physical distancing, wash your hands regularly and if you are unwell stay in and get tested.
For more information about the protection that masks provide against COVID-19 visit: www.nsw.gov.au/media-releases/health-advice-update-on-masks … See MoreSee Less

The Redfern & Waterloo Volunteer Awards is an annual event launched in 2006 by Counterpoint Community Services. They recognise the outstanding efforts of local volunteers, the benefits they bring, and to highlight the value of volunteering.
Each year, we celebrate the achievement and contribution of everyday Australians and leading citizens in our community who are role models for us all. COVID 19 means this year we are hosting them online.
Volunteers inspire us through their achievements and challenge us to make our contribution to creating a better community. Here are some wonderful volunteers nominated for their work with the Waterloo Recycle Workshop.
