Port Phillip Welcomers

Due to current Coronavirus pandemic situation our Waterfront Welcomers program transitioned into Port Phillip Welcomers.
The Port Phillip Welcomers program connects volunteers with Port Phillip residents who are socially isolated due to the impacts of COVID19. Our Welcomers will provide friendly social contact and engagement, general information and referral services via telephone/video, connecting with isolated Port Phillip residents who are at home and without support during the COVID19 pandemic. SPCC is partnering with SHIP and Port Melbourne Rotary on this important initiative and would like to thank them and the Port Philip Council for their support during these challenging times.
For more information and how to access the program please click HERE.
