We hope you find the 2020 Bendigo Charities & Services Guide a useful source of information and inspiring reading.
Our local magazine is one you can turn to time and again, whether you are wanting to volunteer at a local charity, find an outlet where you can donate goods, or you simply want to read about housebound folk who still manage to 'do their bit' in the broader community.
It's all here.
The aim of this guide is to encourage everyone to actively engage in their community 'village' as every pair of hands can make a worthwhile contribution.
It has been produced with input and guidance from many sources, but we are also inspired by the amazing stories of the great people, organisations and communities working hard, learning from and supporting each other, and by their successful approaches and programs that can and do help on a daily basis.
