A Snapshot of Rough Threads
Rough Threads is a community program that strengthens social connectedness & builds a stronger community by bringing those in need together with those who can help.
The Rough Threads community events are aimed at anyone experiencing disadvantage. These are people who become isolated from their communities through poverty, cultural diversity, lack of access to appropriate services and absence of family and community support.
By offering complimentary goods and services (including haircuts, clothing, literacy help, health and wellness activities like GP advice, yoga, massage) and a forum for people to express their own personality, the events create a positive focal point, encourage social interaction and break down feelings of isolation.
It is only in the strengthening of community that we can begin to alleviate the sense of loneliness and depression that can come with experiencing disadvantage and in turn improve the health, wellbeing and lives of thousands of Australians.
