As restrictions ease, Yarraville Community Centre (YCC) has been able to reflect on the year during COVID-19 and feel very proud as an organisation to be part of such an extraordinary community. YCC CEO, Chris McCall says she has been so impressed with the staff’s ability to go “above and beyond” to develop new strategies to connect with our community and continue to deliver our services and programs.
“I have always known how lucky we are to live and work in the inner west but this lockdown has highlighted how our community pulls together to help their neighbours.”
Just one example of the generosity displayed by our community during lockdown was when YCC put the call out for people to sew masks or donate material. Within days they had people from across the West donating their valuable time to help.
YCC also had a fantastic response to their free classes to help improve wellbeing through classes like laughter yoga and mindful meditation.
YCC staff can’t wait to see everyone in person again and thank everyone for their support during a very challenging year.
