Not many people go by helicopter to playgroup, but that’s how Cheree Callaghan from Fairlight Station does it.

She travelled by chopper attend the Frontier Services Remote Area Family Service (RAFS) playgroup at Hann River Roadhouse.

RAFS is just one of the ways Frontier Services supports people in remote areas.

Uniting Church Frontier Services minister Rev Michelle Cook cares for people living in Cape York.

Based in Weipa, Michelle has been in the job for two years and usually travels with her son Zane and sometimes with husband, James Hughes.

“It is a real privilege to sit and chat with people all around the Cape,” Michelle said. “I also help them celebrate weddings, funerals and baptisms.”

Frontier Services also runs a Remote Family Care Service which provides in home carers for children when families are finding it tough.

Another service is Outback Links which links volunteers with various skills to people who need a helping hand and live in remote parts of Australia including the Cape.
