An estimated 40,000 people find themselves homeless every night in Sydney, a figure which was calculated prior to the global pandemic, for which many businesses have since closed and more individuals have found themselves unemployed and on the street. Tomorrow, we will be opening a new clothing hub in the heart of Sydney on Oxford Street in Darlinghurst which will be a base to facilitate the growing requests for help. #clothingcommunities #helpingothers #threadtogether #ethicalfashioninitiative #covidresponse See MoreSee Less

We are thrilled to be nominated and selected by Counterpoint Community Services for the Redfern & Waterloo Volunteer Awards 2020.

We wanted to share with you all a few photos from our NSW representatives – Jenny, Allison and Wallis as they visited the Counterpoint Community Services yesterday for this (social distanced) award presentation.

Over the past few months, many of us have learned that we can find strength and resilience in togetherness and make changes by helping and caring one another in our communities, even in times of uncertainty.

“Changing communities, changing lives” would not be made possible without our volunteers and our supporters, we are grateful for their contributions and the encouragement we received. We will continue to serve our community members who are in need as long as we can.

Recently there has been a lot of movement in Eveleigh; Carriageworks have been given a lifeline, Mirvac’s development in South Eveleigh is progressing quickly and there was a recent North Eveleigh Place Design Forum. REDWatch thought it was a good opportunity to have a session that looks at what is happening at Eveleigh. Also located in Eveleigh is the planned Redfern Station Southern Concourse and a proposed development above Platforms 11 and 12.

Join us on Zoom at 6pm Thursday 3rd September to find out what happened at the North Eveleigh design forum and what the future of Eveleigh might look like. The link to the Zoom meeting is us02web.zoom.us/j/88047671010?pwd=NTJ3TnNBSmZQZ1Uzay9wTW1RQzZWUT09
