The mates can help with: Job seeking assistance; Emotional and counselling support; Collection of essential shopping, medicines and other household items; Help with navigating and accessing on line services; Support and wellbeing check and assistance to access other supports; Assistance with small tasks around the house; and Support for personal growth, education and development. This is the poster for the Flexible Errand Project funded by a City of Sydney grant.

File Waterloo Impact Project Report 2020 Recommendations
These are the final recommendation PowerPoint slides to accompany the Waterloo Impact Project Report. The Waterloo Impact Project explores local perceptions to establish what views exist around the local client referral system and coordination between agencies, both government and non-government, and the needs for any improvement. The consultation consisted of interviews and focus groups with residents and agencies. A draft report was made public in January 2020, and feedback was requested. Independently facilitated follow up workshops took place to test the findings and recommendations. This was a challenging endeavour due to the impacts of Covid-19. The Counterpoint team worked alongside the Waterloo Neighbourhood Advisory Board Waterloo Redevelopment Group and the Redfern Waterloo Groundswell since August 2019 to ensure the report’s relevance and accuracy.
