Welcome to the Autumn edition of Connect.
I trust that you are finding ways to stay connected with family and friends in these challenging times.
As you would be well aware from your own life experiences, challenges can also bring opportunities. This could be the perfect time to take up an old hobby where you left off, or try something completely new.
I enjoyed hearing how Valerie’s writing career sustains her in difficult times (page 4). Joining a local writing group motivated her to draw upon her personal experience and become a published author at the age of 78. Now she can’t imagine a life without writing.
It’s encouraging to see the mobile foot care business FEET2U thriving and expanding (page 8). Anglicare Tasmania is a proud supporter of Tasmanian small businesses and service providers.
This edition also includes some important reminders about looking after our mental health (page 9), how working smoke alarms will keep your home safe from fire (page 6) and reaching out to a financial counsellor if you suspect you or someone you know may be experiencing financial abuse (page 12).
May God bless you and your families.
