One of our greatest observations at Nexus Care is just how lonely and isolated people can be in our community. The significance of this issue has moved us to respond by creating community events that allow our volunteers to foster social inclusion and focus on the value of our community members.
These events are designed to address the significant levels of social isolation and loneliness that exist in our local area by building connectedness and promoting improved mental health for families experiencing adversity.
Its been wonderful to see people connecting and encouraging each other with their stories.
Along with providing refugee support and coordinating maintenance teams, our regular events include monthly morning tea, school holiday programs and an annual Christmas lunch.
