Community Support

Bridges Connecting Communities is a not for profit organisation charity that has been providing services to benefit the elderly and disability community of Knox and South West Yarra Ranges (SWYR) for over 43 years.   It is only through the ongoing financial support of the Commonwealth & State governments,  local businesses and individuals that Bridges can continue to prosper and meet demand.

Every donated dollar is greatly appreciated and used directly to add value to the services delivered to our community.  Last year Bridges supported 620 elderly residents and residents living with a disability who live at home.  Bridges services promote socialisation and independence which has a positive impact on health and well-being allowing residents to remain in their homes as they age.   Bridges fosters an active ageing approach, helps create stronger and resilient communities and is inclusive to all who are eligible to receive our support.

Gifts over $2.00 to Bridges Connecting Communities are tax deductible and a receipt will be issued.

Why Do we Need Support….?

At Bridges our goal is provide our services to as many people in the community as possible.

Current funding is received through the Commonwealth Home Support Program (CHSP) and Home and Community Care Program for Younger people (HACC-PYP), however with an ever increasing ageing population it is only through the support of local businesses, community groups and individuals that Bridges can continue to grow.

Your contributions are put directly towards providing services such as Transport and Social Support Groups.

If you are a business, community group or individual and would like to support Bridges please contact our office.
