Sip with us, let’s talk! Grab yourself a cuppa, wear a splash of yellow and join our community for a chat via Zoom to celebrate RUOK Day!
About this event
A conversation could change a life…
RUOK’s mission is to inspire and empower people to meaningfully connect with those in their world and lend support when they are struggling with life.
Now more than ever we recognise the importance of connection, so we’re inviting our whole City of Stonnington community to grab a cuppa, have a chat and reconnect… via Zoom!
You may see some familiar faces, reconnect with old friends or meet some brand new neighbours! We’ll provide some conversation starters, you just need to bring your cuppa, wear a splash of yellow and be ready for a yarn! Everyone is welcome!
A simple chat can mean everything to a friend or loved one who might be struggling. Even if they seem fine, it doesn’t mean they are. Those in need of support might not always ask for it. That’s why you need to trust your instincts and, if you’re worried about someone in your world, reach out and ask, “Are you OK?”

And welcome to Spring
In this month’s eNews we continue to bring you a range of supports available to carers, as well as some activities and courses to get involved in whilst spending more time at home.

Taxi voucher assistance for vaccination appointments
Funded taxi travel to COVID 19 vaccine appointments at vaccination centres will be available to anyone who receives a government benefit through Centrelink (except the Family Tax Benefit).
Providing funded taxi travel to and from vaccination appointments will help to remove travel costs as a barrier to vaccination. This is a trial service for both first and second dose appointments.
The taxi booking will be made at point of vaccination booking, and the individual will be provided with a return trip ID so they can book their paid return trip following their vaccination.
People can access this service by calling the Victorian Coronavirus Hotline on 1800 675 398.
