Community Drop-in

The Community Drop-in is a crucial cornerstone service and safety net for vulnerable community members. Our targeted support services evolved from here as we responded to community needs. Committed to creating a welcoming and safe space, we have the privilege of hearing from individuals facing challenges that hinder their well-being. We approach this with utmost sensitivity, recognising and validating their experiences. Our firm belief in a trauma-informed and person-centred approach guides us to earn trust and an invitation to provide information, support, advocacy, and referrals.
