Winter local appeal.

As the days get colder, we bring out our winter doonas, turn up the heating or buy a new jacket to stay warm and dry. Your gift goes directly to Uniting in Barwon's Winter Local Appeal.

Support local

Winter local appeal - Barwon.

We have seen a huge increase in people accessing our service this past year, so we expect the need for winter support will be greater than in previous years.

And last year we were overwhelmed with requests for assistance. Unfortunately, we weren’t able to help everyone. This year it’s our goal to assist every person coming to us to stay warm during the cold winter months.

Your gift goes directly to Uniting in Barwon’s Winter Local Appeal.
