Shout Support: A Month of In-the-Community Support
This voucher is for a month’s worth of Outreach Support. Only catch is that this gift isn’t for you … your gift is knowing you’ve given this to someone in incredible need. Your gift means the world to them!
Staying residentially at Taranaki Retreat isn’t the right answer for everyone—but heading out of the Retreat for a bit of time-out, touching base with one of the Care Team, getting some time away from it all (by being part of the life of the Retreat for the day) regularly, or from time to time, can make such a difference.
- For others, we regularly visit people in their homes, workplaces or a safe place such as a café or one of our local parks. This might just be so that our Guest can download the challenges of the last couple of weeks to a person who will understand. Or it might be that our Guest will be working on specific life-changing goals with their Support Worker. They will also be there to consider what other services in our community might help, right now.
- Imagine what a difference this kind of non-judgemental caring support can bring to a person recently bereaved by suicide, for example. It may well save their life. Today, that is the gift you are giving.
