Reconnecting people with their community

Eastern Star Grant

Suncare is helping connect more people in remote areas thanks to the generosity of The Eastern Star Foundation.

We are very pleased to announce that Eastern Star Foundation has very generously donated a vehicle and funding to cover running costs for one year. The vehicle will enable our Community Visitors Scheme volunteers to reach more customers so they may remain independent and connect with their communities and lessen feelings of isolation.

The Community Visitors Scheme is about providing friendship and companionship to older people, to help develop social connections and networks and increase connection in the community. Suncare currently supports more than 40 participants across the Sunshine Coast and Brisbane, with plans to increase to 250 participants from the Gold Coast to Rockhampton.

For information about the Community Visitors Scheme, please contact our Customer Service Team on 1800 786 227.
