Hey there, don't feel lonely we're just around the corner

AFTER five years of service to the community, the Never Alone Friendship Centre has relocated from the Burleigh Heads Uniting Church to the Masonic Hall, just around the corner in First Ave, Burleigh Heads.

Over the span of five years we have addressed the needs of people who, for various reasons, find themselves without family or friends to support them, or have little or no social life. Being lonely or isolated can have a significant affect on people's health and wellbeing and although we do not offer any magic solution to this, we do offer a friendly environment where people from all walks of life can come and be welcomed by our volunteers and enjoy the company of other like-minded people. The opportunity to sit and have morning tea and a chat with fellow guests and volunteers goes some way to addessing their needs.

The centre is self-funded and relies on donations and grants. It is recognised by many agencies who refer their clients to the centre.

The centre operates from the Masonic Hall in First Ave, Burleigh Heads, and is open each Wednesday from 9am until midday. The cost is a $2 donation. For information call 07 5562 2993.
