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 11.30am and 2.00pm 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.

Coming Events

The Friends of Lisgar Gardens are celebrating the 50th Anniversary of the gardens on Sunday 16th September 2018 with an afternoon of music in the gardens. The nominated beneficiary for this day is Hornsby Connect so we would like to encourage all our volunteers, clients and friends to come along and support this wonderful celebration.

Lisgar Gardens is a beautiful hillside garden in the heart of Hornsby that is especially well-known for its range of camellias.

Date: Sunday 16th September
Time: 1.00 – 4.00pm
Address: Lisgar Road, Hornsby

We will have an information booth in place during the afternoon and we would like some volunteers to help us on the day by handing out brochures and helping promote the work of Hornsby Connect.

If you would like more information, please email or ask one of the team leaders during our operating hours on any Wednesday.
