Do you need to connect with other people again after COVID-19 restrictions? Or find a service or new things to do to beat the post-COVID blues?

Come along to one of the Community Activation and Social Isolation (CASI) Community Connector sessions during June to meet some of the local CASI Community Connectors as well as find ways to link with others, learn about local activities and services, or just have a chat over a cuppa.

“These sessions are mainly for people who have been impacted by COVID-19 and need help reconnecting with activities, services or their community,” said Melissa Fowler, Mount Alexander Shire Council’s CASI Community Connector.

“But anyone is welcome so we hope to meet lots of people and chat about some of the things they are interested in as well as some services they might need.

“The aim of the sessions are to provide face-to-face support in local towns to help people who may be feeling anxious about re-engaging with their community again. Whether it’s support to connect online, or with groups or just wanting someone to talk to, we hope to help them re-connect.”

Community Connector sessions will be held on:

- Tuesday 8 June, 10am to 12pm – Castlemaine Senior Citizens
- Thursday 10 June, 10am to 12pm – Maldon Community Centre
- Tuesday 15 June, 10am to 12pm – Harcourt Leisure Centre

- Thursday 24 June, 1pm to 3pm – Taradale Hall
- Friday 25 June, 10am to 12pm – Ray Bradfield Room
