Phone Chat for isolated people

The Community Houses Association of the Outer eastern Suburbs (CHAOS Inc) is a network of 30 Neighbourhood and community houses and centres across Melbourne’s outer eastern suburbs. 

Current COVID-19 restrictions require people to stay home and self isolate, meaning many people, especially those unable to use or without access to technology, may be cut off from their normal social support networks and feel very lonely and isolated. 

In response to this we have created a toll free line where people can simply ring and have a chat. It is not therapeutic or for crisis, just a friendly person on the other end of the phone.

The service will operate Monday - Friday 10am - 1pm and Monday - Thursday 5pm - 9pm. 

To get the word out, we would really appreciate if you could distribute this flyer via your groups, virtual and physical notice boards, letter box drops, displayed in a shop window, newsletters, friends and neighbours… anywhere you think someone who needs it might see it.
