Winter Local Appeal

Winter local appeal.

With the colder months upon us, many in our community will face the harsh realities of winter. We need your help bringing comfort to those who need it most in the cold weather.

Support your community

Be part of Uniting's Winter local appeal.

For many of us, the cooler weather signals the need to bring out our winter doonas, turn up the heating or buy a new jacket to stay warm and dry. Sadly, cost-of-living hikes have meant affording these basics is becoming an unachievable goal, and many families are having to choose between electricity or food, medicine or warmth.

You can help bring some much-needed warmth, comfort, and hope to those who need it most this winter by providing new or good quality used blankets, doonas, swags, jackets and other winter woollies.

Your generosity can help keep people warm this winter

Donate a much-needed winter item

Nancy's story

With the rising cost of living, people are facing new hardships every day.

In her mid-30s, Nancy had bravely escaped a violent relationship. Hailing from Iran, she now found herself alone with nowhere to go and no one to turn to.

Fortuitously, Nancy crossed paths with Uniting and she was immediately offered crisis accommodation.

“It was a hard time. I didn’t know where to go,”
