The aim of Hornsby Connect is to provide support and hope to those that need it most within the community. With a growing population, the Hornsby Shire covers a large region and has fallen victim to the many social issues that are reflected within the wider society.

One major issue identified is the isolation and dislocation that some experience within our community. Whether it be the elderly or the young, due to cultural separation, or people experiencing financial hardships, Hornsby Connect is open for you.

Available to all Health Care Card and Pension Card holders

Come and visit a safe community hub that will be open every Wednesday* between 1.30-3.30pm to enjoy some company or a much needed tea or coffee. Hornsby Connect hub is a low-cost Food Distribution Centre for those experiencing financial hardship providing bread, milk, groceries, fruit and vegies as well as offering a Café facility with free tea, coffee and cakes to enjoy with company.
