Our club has launched a program called Virtual Neighbours - a new service to provide connectedness and assurance through regular phone or web calls to the elderly. We aim to reignite that 'local community feeling' of being valued and included in a time of social distancing & isolation. 

We say to our community, especially the elderly – you are not alone! You can always speak to your friendly, trusted & caring Rotary Virtual Neighbour.  

Our volunteer Virtual Visitors are recruited carefully taking into consideration their ability and willingness to commit to this important initiative. Our project team matches recipients and volunteers considering common interests where possible, and time availability. We enable the volunteers with the support required to provide this service

 

And we say to you - please help us with our outreach. If you would like to know more, do contact us on 0478 110 943 or via Facebook Messenger. 

If you know someone who could benefit from this service, please speak with them or their carers in the first instance and encourage them to contact us. This way, we can always keep privacy, safety and confidentiality topmost in mind.

 

Trying something new, taking a risk, making new connections, or putting yourself in a totally new situation won’t be easy, but it’s worth it. It’s exhausting but rewarding. That's exactly what our international exchange student Alsendra Lami did.

Dear Johanna and the Rotary Club of Beecroft

As we all celebrate National Volunteer Week mostly from our home offices, Taldumande Youth Services would like to extend a heartfelt thanks to all our volunteers who have helped us support over 600 vulnerable children and young people in our care from all across Sydney, over the past year.

Whether you’ve participated in a corporate backyard blitz, done regular gardening at any of our properties, designed our annual report, raised funds to help us maintain our properties and support our programs, volunteered at a fundraising event or at the young people’s Christmas party, organised donations for our young people or helped us at head office in research or administrative roles, each and everyone of you are so important to us.

Without our volunteers, the success of the provision of our services would be so much harder to achieve. You truly are Changing Communities and Changing Lives and again this year we thank you for generously performing roles that would be extremely costly to our not-for-profit organisation.

We wish to thank our local community, without our dedicated locals, these projects would not be made possible for the Rotary Club of Beecroft to get involved with!

We are helping to empower youth to independence and stability....help us help the homeless kids of Sydney!
