Lockdowns, Isolation and uncertainty fuel fear

Lockdowns, Isolation and uncertainty fuel fear

By Andrew Hillier 

Devonport Churches Community Development 


Lockdowns, quarantine, isolation. One week they don't exist, the next they do. Who's next, and where? 


Holidays are cancelled, plans are changed, uncertainty becomes the only constant. 


The continuing turmoil has a particular and significant impact on many of the young people we work with. 


For this reason, our dedicated team of chaplains, mentors and volunteers remain focused on our mission of "Making life better, one relationship at a time." 


We are committed to promoting a place of belonging where young people know they do not walk alone or unprotected. 


In the words of Mother Teresa, "Loneliness and the feeling of being unwanted is the most terrible poverty.'' 


Breakfast Feeds Learning


Breakfast is the most important meal of the day for learning minds. 


Tough times at home: the loss of a job, financial and relational stress, mean many Tasmanian children come to school with empty bellies. 


Our Food 4 Thought breakfast program meets the important face-to-face connection children need while also providing a nutritious start to the day. 


Please support our chaplains, mentors and volunteers by making a financial gift online now, and/or consider joining us at the Toast For Kids charity gala on August 14. 


This is a great night out, but also helps feed up to 1000 students a week, through our 16 breakfast programs in North-West schools where we have chaplains and mentors.
