Caring for our Community
Poverty, hardship or homelessness may occur at any time during a person’s lifetime.
"I need help..."
Our Caring for our Community information resource has been collaboratively developed with input from local community groups, to show you that you’re not alone. There is support available to help you or someone you know get through the tough times. We have a caring community. There are many businesses and residents who genuinely want to help others experiencing adversity or disadvantage.
"I want to help..."
If you would like to make a difference in the City of Bayswater, you can connect with a local community group listed in our information resource, learn how they help others, and consider whether you can volunteer time, donate money, or provide goods to help others to make a fresh start.
The City of Bayswater is committed to supporting positive mental health and wellbeing within the community, and has partnered with Mentally Healthy WA to promote the Act Belong Commit health campaign.
Mentally Healthy WA, based at Curtin University, has a webpage containing links to many helpful resources, including apps, books, guided meditations, magazines, online courses, podcasts and videos, to name a few.
City of Bayswater Mayor Filomena Piffaretti launched Hub Connections on Thursday 5 May 2022.
