What You Can Do

Community Volunteering

“Volunteering is time willingly given for the common good without financial gain”.

Volunteering can help you gain confidence, meet people, learn new skills, decrease social isolation, act as a pathway to employment all whilst you are doing something constructive within your community and making a difference!

Volunteers are happier, healthier and sleep better than those who don’t volunteer.

Connect Socially Online

An option is  to use the  Barossa Facebook channels to keep in contact with your local community, to chat and share your experiences, give information, make new friends and support each other.  Search Facebook to join and participate on a local Facebook Groups.

Connect with Community Groups and Church Congregations

Consider Whats App or Next Door  apps to connect with neighbours or community.

Participate in a ZOOM meeting for a community gathering and social interaction.  It’s easy to use and it’s free (for up to 40 minutes). Longer meetings are available if desired.  These are sponsored and coordinated through the Southerm Barossa Alliance.

Connect with your Neighbours

Often asking for help can be difficult, especially if you don’t really know your neighbours or are new to the community. Why not pop a note in your neighbours letterboxes introducing yourself and reaching out to those who need help.

It could be to collect supplies or groceries, running errands, mowing lawns, walking their dog, or offering your phone number for someone to just have a chat to.
