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.

We have various roles that need to be filled each week on Tuesday and/or Wednesday.

  • Would you like to be part of a driving team collecting food from suppliers and supermarkets ?
  • Would you like to help sort our produce and set up the shop ready for its opening to clients?
  • Would you like to work in the centre serving clients, helping them shop or serving meals?
  • Do you have IT / Computer skills and would be willing to help with administrative tasks?

We are a voluntary organisation and rely on support from the public if we are to continue to operate.

DID YOU KNOW?

Last year we distributed over 100,000 kgs of food, to more than 5,000 recipients, and served over 6,000 hot meals to clients at our centre. We are so grateful for the dedication and commitment given by our wonderful volunteers who help make this all happen each week

You will require a current Working With Children (WWC) number to be eligible to work as one of our volunteers. This is a requirement of Hornsby Connect and Hornsby Shire Council, the managers of the Youth and Community Centre where we operate.For more information on Working With Children numbers visit the Office of the Children’s Guardian website.

Donations of non-perishable food and money is also appreciated to help us continue this much-needed service. Click on the “Donate” button above for more details.
