How about Paying It Forward to help someone who just needs a ‘leg-up’ to get themselves back on track?
There is no time like the present to draw on community support to help our neighbours and those you see doing it tough – and we know it’s particularly difficult given the impact of Covid-19 on all of us, but especially those who have had their hopes even further diminished by this unprecedented indictment on our lives.
As a non-profit organisation in South Australia, we have been supporting job seekers for over 10 years, and we can see how a sudden downward spiral affects people’s livelihoods such as depression, anxiety, loss of optimism and trust; manifesting in a barrier preventing them from moving forward with new lens.
Each week we have people contact us for help however we no longer have the financial means to provide services for nothing, so we have established a GoFundMe fundraiser to raise funds to provide individual support to people who really need it and would not be able to afford it otherwise.
Any contribution no matter how small would be appreciated – every $100 will be enough for a person to receive sufficient intensive help to feel optimistic about the way forward with their employment or life goals. This includes life skills and goal setting, career counselling, job search, resume preparation and advocacy to other specialist support where needed.
