7 News: Sam & Sonya: Connecting in COVID-19

For those like Sonya, this is a visit she relies on every week. Sam has become more than a support worker – she’s a friend. She visits for 6 hours twice a week especially in a time that is more isolating than ever and now restricted to indoors where they cook and do arts and crafts.

“The people we support are used to being in the community”, said Sam, a Support Worker using Kynd.

Their relationship was formed by Kynd -  an online service matching support workers for those living with a disability.

Since the COVID-19 crises, enquiries are up at Kynd. People still need support and people are looking for work. Kynd Founder Michael Metcalfe said “People are now looking for alternatives, they’re looking for things that are critical and needed going forward and support provides a great option”.
