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.
Hello Hunter is for any person experiencing hardship due to social isolation, poverty, disease, disaster, disability, illness, age, mental health, family, social, or other community network breakdown.
Our volunteers are available for a friendly chat. They are not counsellors or health professionals but they have time to listen. A worry shared is sometimes a worry halved. If you need specialist help they will assist you in finding the help you need.
They can make a delivery of essential food or medicine if a temporary situation has come up that means you are unable to get to the shops.
Hello Hunter partners with Churches and their volunteers are available to pray with you on request. In times of crisis prayer can provide comfort and direction.
