The Assisting Communities through Direct Connection (ACDC) Project was created to look at ways to increase independence, assist access to support, encourage social and community participation of people who are not accessing services and collect data on the scale of unmet need in Australian communities. The project operates in all Australian states and territories. People Connectors engaged by HelpingMinds will conduct safe door knocking activities, walking from household to household to discuss the project and how it can be of help to householders, deliver information products on local services and engage in a survey.
