PeelConnect Incorporated is committed to building a better community by bringing individuals and organisations together to address issues of homelessness, mental health, drugs and alcohol.
We are dedicated to making our community a better place for all, and nurture productive relationships to achieve this.
What we do
Mentoring, Advocacy, Counselling and Support
Volunteers provide a daytime outreach service to homeless people in the form of mentoring. Mentors are matched to a homeless person who has identified this to be a useful service for them. Mentors and mentees meet on a regular basis to establish a trusting relationship that fosters positive change. Mentors may also provide transport and support in attending appointments, and in transition to stable accommodation.
Additionally MACS has a team of qualified counsellors, providing counselling by donation to those who would otherwise have limited access to this support due to issues of finances, wait times, and transport. Clients may be referred by other agencies, or self refer.
This service is provided by a team of volunteers who go into the community at night to provide assistance to homeless people.
PeelConnect Incorporated supply care bags comprised of mostly donated items such as blankets, towels, socks, toiletries, and other essential items.
Our Night Carers also offer a hot drink, a friendly chat, and sometimes referrals to other local agencies that might be able to provide assistance.
Sewing for the
PeelConnect Incorporated, in conjunction with Employment Services Group, has facilitated a Work for the Dole project where participants are sewing shopping bags as a small contribution to a world less dependent on plastic.
Participants gain new skills and benefit from the additional opportunity to socialise and make new community connections.
All funds generated from this project contribute to the work of PeelConnect
Incorporated and this project is only possible with thanks to:
Employment Services Group for collaboration, use of their venue and sourcing of participants,
Participants who sew, and
Our volunteers who generously gift their time and expertise to provide supervision for the sewing project.
Celebrating Connection in Community (CCC) Dinner
This dinner is now established as an annual event on the FIRST DAY OF AUGUST each year. PeelConnect Incorporated provides free tickets to partner agencies working in the fields of mental health, drugs and alcohol, and homelessness within the Peel region.
We create an environment outside of daily work pressure to nurture partner agency employees, their volunteers, and those individuals in the community who work tirelessly for the good of others. This fun event fosters stronger relationships and enhances the effectiveness of referrals for our common clients.
