Hello Hunter partners with churches to mobilise volunteers to help people in need, regardless of their faith background, commitment, or other social standing or identity. It is for people in the Hunter Region experiencing loneliness and or social isolation.
Our volunteers are available for a friendly chat. They are not counsellors or health professionals but they have time to listen.
If you need other support the Hello Hunter Call Centre can research what is available in your local area.
Hello Hunter partners with Churches and their volunteers are available to pray with you on request.
NOTE: Call Centre Demonstration Scenario (the neighbour in this clip has been acted by a volunteer). The privacy of all those who reach out for support is protected.
Hello Hunter is not a crisis or emergency number.
The Hello Hunter Directory contains information about ways to connect and where to get help.
Hello Hunter is committed to the safety of volunteers, staff and every person who reaches out for assistance. We are committed to preventing harm and abuse and understand that we are responsible and accountable under State and Federal law to protect children and vulnerable people.
