Recent times have demonstrated the importance of having a safe and comfortable home. Member organisation, VMCH, is proud to unveil its newest Specialist Disability Accommodation (SDA) in Carrum. Five adults moved from its Highett SDA into the two connected, three-bedroom houses on July 6 and are busy making their new spaces home.
Catholic Social Services Victoria's July eNewsletter is out now. It's full of latest information and upcoming events from within the social services sector, and from our many members. This edition includes a number of job vacancies, with one of the applications closing 19th July. There's also information about the home vigil organised for Sunday 19th July at 7pm, to join in solidarity for our asylum seeker brothers and sisters who've been in detention for too long!
Check out all of the details, here.

Sunday the 19th of July 2020 marks seven years since former Prime Minister Kevin Rudd announced that people seeking asylum, arriving by boat, will never be settled in Australia and be processed offshore. After these seven years there have been many tragic consequences resulting from this policy. This year due to COVID-19 we cannot gather in person to mourn or protest, but you can take a candle and 7 minutes of silence, at 7pm on the 19th July in your own home or backyard. Make a video or photo as you do this, have an accompanying sign or message and then share your photograph/video after using the hashtags #freetherefugees #7yearstoolong #GameOver. More information here.

The head office of MacKillop Family Services is one of the oldest orphanages in Australia. Being of such historical significance, it’ll be ‘opened up’ to the public virtually as part of the Open House Melbourne weekend on 25-26 July. An interactive map and tour will showcase elements of the building and give insight into the social history from the mid-1800s. There’ll also be two live Q&As. Join the Facebook event and skip the queues to take part in the online Open House tour, here
