At Neighbourhood Link we help people stay active, connected and as independent as possible. Our free or low-cost support services are funded in full or part by government initiatives. Our friendly team can help you in all sorts of ways, including:

  • in-home visits - helping with everyday tasks, like making lunch and tidying up, or just to stop by for a cuppa and a chat 
  • accompanied activities - running errands, helping with shopping, taking you to catch-ups with friends
  • flexible respite - helping caregivers take a break, so caregivers and care receivers can maintain healthy relationships - we offer respite support in your home (so you caregiver can go out) or in the community (so your caregiver can enjoy a break at home)

❤ At Neighbourhood Link we care for you as if you're our own loved one ❤
