Support for Peplow House

On most evenings at Peplow House, the kitchen is a hub of activity.

Residents of the short-term crisis accommodation centre work together to prepare meals while learning about nutrition and developing cooking skills with the help of support workers.

“It might be one or two preparing the meal for dinner tonight and then the others will all join in,” Deanna Davis, Centacare General Manager Family and Community Services says.

“It is a supportive environment and sometimes that builds social links and friendships that can continue when they have left.”

Centacare received $14,500 from the philanthropic organisation the Ballarat Foundation in 2016 through The Courier Charity Fund to upgrade the Peplow House kitchen.
