As you may be aware, at midnight last night, stage 2 shutdowns commenced as advised by the Federal Government. Community Centres were included in the closure list. Whilst we at Counterpoint have worked hard to keep our community centre doors open for those in crisis and most vulnerable, we now have no choice but to close our doors to all drop in’s.
We will continue to do our best for as long as we are allowed to providing information, support and advice by Phone, E-mail, and Facebook messenger.
Our staff have been contacting as many of our regular clients as possible by phone and will continue to do so.
As some of our staff are working from home, we might not be able to respond to all enquires immediately. However please leave a clear message with the best way to contact you and someone will be in touch.
If we cannot help you through one of the above measures and we have to meet face to face, we will do our best to arrange that safely.
From next week, we will also be attempting to set up a regular online drop-in mechanism for informal gatherings which you can also access by phone. You will be able to catch up with our staff and have a yarn. Details will be posted on our Facebook page.
Also, our management team are in daily contact with a range of Government Departments and other services to advocate on your behalf to make sure no one is left struggling during this unprecedented hard time.
If you or anyone you know is struggling and in needs of support with any anything at all; eg., Food, household items, Medicine, household bills, loneliness, anxiety, liaising with Centrelink or housing NSW etc. Please contact us.
We have been advocating for emergency supplies of staples, sadly without much success so far. If we do secure them, we will let you know how to access them.
The lockdown is likely to be happening for sometimes, therefore please don’t wait if you are in need now let us know.
The more we are aware of who is in need of an extra hand now and what resources are required, the better position we will be in to secure the help and assistance needed.
If we can’t help, our team won’t rest till we find someone who can. No one needs to be alone during this time.
Please do keep in touch, follow the government’s advice, and lookout for yourself and your neighbours and follow our social media pages for more updates.
Keep physical distancing but social solidarity in mind. … See MoreSee Less
