Hub Connections

Poverty, hardship and homelessness can affect anyone at any time in their life, often as a result of circumstances beyond their control. Many people may not know where to find help. The City of Bayswater has established Hub Connections at the Morley Library as place-based response to respond and prevent homelessness.

The City of Bayswater is not a community service provider. Our trained City of Bayswater Hub Connector volunteers will be available to listen and help. The volunteers will provide information and assist with connecting you to a community service provider that matches your needs.

Hub Connections

Address: Morley Library, 240 Walter Road West, Morley

Operating times:

Wednesday

 3.30–6.30pm

Thursday

 10am–1pm, 3.30–6.30pm

Friday 

 10am–1pm

  • Closed public holidays and other scheduled Morley Library closures.

Seeking volunteers
We are looking for people with empathy who can be generous with their time to engage with people experiencing or at risk of homelessness and connect them with services and information. The Hub Connector volunteer role will be varied and dynamic. This role would suit people of all ages including those who have a community service background or a background in nursing/medicine/psychology/occupational therapy/social work/social science or who have a certificate IV in mental health or students seeking experience with vulnerable people from all walks of life. 

Our volunteers assist for between three and nine hours a week during the above times the Hub is operating. 

 We would love to hear from you if you can:

  • demonstrate excellent communication and listening skills
  • show empathy and have a non-judgemental attitude
  • volunteer for 3-9 hours a week with a commitment of six months

 Being a Hub Connector will offer you the opportunity to:

  • connect and give back to the community
  • develop your practical counselling skills
  • develop trauma-informed engagement approaches
  • increase emotional intelligence capacity through self-awareness
  • pursue further career opportunities in this area

Caring for our Community

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. Click on the link below to discover more.
