At the onset of the global pandemic in March 2020, the Shire launched YORKIND to provide support and advice to residents during a period of uncertainty and confusion.

With Covid-19 now in our community, the Shire is again activating the program to provide a connection between those wanting to help and those at high risk of being affected by COVID-19.

Contact us Monday – Friday 9.30 – 4.30pm to find out more. 

Can you help us?

We are looking for volunteers to help seniors and vulnerable people who are socially isolated. 

Whether it's helping someone with their grocery shopping, dog walking, a friendly phone check-in, or other errands - any little assistance you can offer will go a long way for someone in need.

Please fill out the  short online form below to register as a volunteer or participant, and we will put you in direct contact with residents offering or requesting assistance.  If you don't want to fill out the form, you can call us on 0460 039 935 or email:

  • Complete the I can help online form to register as a volunteer.
  • Complete the I need help online form if you are in need of assistance during this crisis.

When volunteering your time, please remember that COVID-19 is contagious so please take every precaution to ensure you are spreading only kindness, avoid physical contact and wash your hands regularly.

This initiative has been organised in good faith and for the welfare of all participants, please ensure you undertake normal personal safety measures.
