Community Watch Program – Supporting Community Wellbeing in Hume and Whittlesea

Posted by Sharyn Rognrust, Category: Community Watch Program, Loneliness, Social Inclusion, Social Isolation, Social Prescribing, Volunteers, Vulnerable People,

We have joined forces with DPV Health to develop the Community Watch Project in response to the disruptions caused by COVID-19.

The Project is supported by an exciting partnership of diverse and committed organisations including Banksia Gardens, Whittlesea Community Connections and other organisations from across Hume and Whittlesea council areas.

The purpose of the Community Watch Project is to assist community organisations and groups, which play an important role in supporting all members of our community during this period of restrictions and recovery.

If your organisation have available staff and volunteers, the Community Watch Project will partner and work alongside you to:

a. Develop a program to check in and support the most vulnerable community members you work with.

b. Provide support to improve your existing program so that vulnerable members of our community can access information and support to maintain their wellbeing.
