ANGLICARE WARRNAMBOOL

   Caring is one of the main attributes that society needs. Anglicare Warrnambool is attempting to share the care in our community by providing assistance to the many people who need someone to care for them. Families play a vital role in our community, yet the struggles they face sometimes pose a very real threat to their stability. For families facing issues such as unemployment, illness and poverty, Anglicare Warrnambool provides much needed support and hope for the future.
   Through the provision of food packs, Anglicare Warrnambool is helping families and singles to help themselves. The food packs are designed to help a family of four through six days of crisis and include a menu and recipes to help with the preparation.
   Anglicare Warrnambool is able to provide instruction in budgeting and simple cookery and other life skills to assist in producing nutritious meals for families within their budget.
   The Anglicare office is staffed by volunteers, many of whom are parishioners, and who meet each month for instruction and sharing of work related issues.

Anglicare Office
is open Monday to Friday from 10am to 11.50am.
