Port Phillip Community Group

Port Phillip Community Group Appeal

$
Port Phillip Community Group's mission is to foster an inclusive, socially just Port Phillip. WE focus on the wellbeing of our most disadvantaged residents through poverty, alleviation, health, engagement, advocacy and skills development strategies, while fostering social cohesion for all residents of Port Phillip.
 
Many of Port Phillip Community Group's projects and programs are underfunded to meet he increasing demand as costs of private rental, food, transport and education spiral. Gentrification has made the area less attractive to funders despite the increasing need of a section of our residents. This is an opportunity for local residents to contribute to the marginalised and disadvantaged within their own community building trust and engagement.

How will the funds be used?

Funds will be used to directly benefit recipients. No funds will be used for administration or wages.

 

Key Areas of Expenditure

 
Food and Practical Items: due to the pressures of poverty, low income, insecure housing or homelessness, our clients often present in crisis and with multiple and complex issues. From our service delivery sites in St Kilda, South Melbourne and Port Melbourne we provide food vouchers, food pantry items, fresh fruit and vegetables, phone access, travel passes, infant and adult hygiene products, pharmacy assistance, clothes vouchers and rough sleeping kits.
 
Back to School Program: assists more than 100 families across the school year with funds for uniforms, books and school trips. These are paid directly to the supplier or school. 

Pathways to Education and Employment: we deliver skills based classes, courses and workshops across the City of Port Phillip. These include IT, photography and film making, song writing, hospitality, sewing, cooking and art.
 
We also like to provide opportunities for our clients to have fun and express themselves. Five Minutes of Fame (FMOF) is one such event. This is an 'Open Mic' event with a two course sit down dinner. Up to 100 people attend each event and there are always wonderful and engaging performances that often lead to other theatre and performance opportunities.
