Outback Connect is a proactive program to support people across the West using “community-led care”. Community-led care is everyday people taking responsibility for everyday people, individuals providing a listening ear to assist people where they are at.

Our goal is to build resilient communities and holistically support people in the West (support them in every area of their life). We are hoping to create regular points of relational connection for people across the west. This is currently done through our paddock days where we pull together quality speakers from a range of expertise that will provide needed support, in a context where relationships are developed and skills are learnt.

We also have a team of everyday people who would love to support people through listening and asking good questions to help them reflect on their current situation.

We also work closely with other groups and agencies to be able to connect the people we are journey with to any help and support they need.

If you would like one of our team to touch base with you for a chat, please call 07 4658 3865 or email outbackconnect@longreachbaptist.com
