I encourage anyone feeling overwhelmed during the pandemic to reach out – it is OK to not to be OK.

You can call Lifeline, NSW Mental Health Line, Beyond Blue, Twenty10 and QLife. All of these have lots of helpful resources online.

Lifeline – 131 114

NSW Mental Health Line – 1800 011 511

Beyond Blue – 1300 224 636

Twenty10 – 8594 9555

QLife Australia - 1800 184 527

Access online support at HeadtoHealth: > HERE

Along with Lord Mayor Clover Moore I’ve called for local support and I understand the government will announce additional support later this week. Financial help: > HERE

DCJ Housing and the City of Sydney are coordinating outreach to make sure that people sleeping rough can get temporary accommodation. The Treasurer has responded to Lord Mayor Clover Moore and my request for an extension of funding to OzHarvest to make sure vulnerable people can get nutritious food.

I’ve also lodged questions in Parliament calling for specific help for small businesses: > HERE and ongoing emergency relief for vulnerable groups impacted by the pandemic restrictions: > HERE.  

Let's work together to celebrate and protect our great city!
