‘Stepping Up’ Mentoring programs in the Illawarra region
This year we are partnering with Top Blokes Foundation to roll out two new ‘Stepping Up’ Mentoring programs in the Illawarra region for at-risk and disengaged boys in grades 5 & 6
The ‘Stepping Up’ program aims to address many of the emerging social issues facing boys, as well as help them develop key social and decision-making skills. Top Blokes Foundation work closely with the schools to focus on the topics covered over the 8-week program
One Stop Health Service Hub for people experiencing homelessness
We are proud to partner with The Footpath Library on their new project, ‘One Stop Health Service Hub’ Sydney. The Hub will be a place where people who are experiencing homelessness or disadvantage can go to access a range of services such as:
- Legal aid
- Health assessments or check-ups
- Dental services
- Street Veterinarian
- Births, Deaths and Marriages services
- Scribes (to assist with forms, letters and documents)
- Books and reading glasses (supplied by The Footpath Library).
This exciting initiative is in the process of becoming reality by the end of 2021!
We are looking forward to sharing more details over the coming months
