Path 2 Change and Gundog Estate have been in a partnership since 2018. The partnership consists of three main components. Firstly, Gundog raise funds to assist our young people with practical needs such as food, rent, fuel, opal cards, interview and clothing, driving lessons and school and course fees and equipment.
The second component is an initiative developed to showcase a ‘Limited Edition’ wine label which raises additional funds for our young people but more importantly highlights the journey of young people of their ‘Lived Experience’ in homelessness. The label is a wonderful opportunity to create awareness about the issue of youth homelessness in our local region.
The third component is the ‘Work Experience’ opportunity for our young people. Many young people experiencing homelessness may not have the confidence, skills and supports to access employment. The staff at Gundog Cellar Door in Pokolbin Hunter Valley provide training, support and mentoring to help our young people access experience to add to their resumes.
