Natalie is the founder and coordinator of Cayac Care Centre and Shop. Natalie began a Facebook group three years ago, establishing a network of people to assist others experiencing homelessness, women and children fleeing domestic violence and families under financial stress. The initial contact via Facebook led to referrals to organisations who have the resources and staff trained to assist. This work has led her to open a charity shop and the funds from this will be creating a café offering budget meals, a place of connection for those who need it, breakfast to unfed school children, lunch for homeless people and a further revenue stream toward long term goals such as owning emergency housing.

Congratulations Natalie on the good volunteering you do, thank you!
