Pick My Project - We have been Shortlisted!

Posted 13/8/2018

We have been successful in the first round of Pick My Project, a new $30 million Victorian Government initiative! The next step is to click our picture on the right, register, vote and let your friends know about it!  


All you need is an email account and a smart phone at the ready, it only takes 5 minutes.  To vote for the Umbrella Dementia Cafes,  you must live or work within a 5km radius of our cafés. (There are a few exceptions to this rule, so type in your postcode and you’ll be surprised what pops up!)


See what community projects are happening in your local community and VOTE to help bring them to life!  


We have been working hard on our marketing campaign doing email drops to all who know and love us, and beating our local streets posting flyers the old fashioned way, in the letter boxes! Drumming up enough support to get us over the line. 


Koonung Cottage Community House will be available Monday - Thursday between 11am - 12 noon every day until 17th September to help you with the voting process, especially if you don’t have an email address.  Please call the Community House on 9878 6632 to book a 5 minute appointment.


We believe we can do great things and inspire other communities to do the same.  

We believe we can de-isolate people living with dementia by involving the whole community.  

We believe we can create more awareness and innovation by including local families and school children into our volunteer program. 

We believe the people living with dementia can thrive (not just survive) if we keep the care-couple connected through love, pride, hope and appreciation. 

We believe it takes a village to age with dignity.


All our fingers and toes are crossed to be successful in the voting stages!
