The One of a Kind Story

This is an ongoing story, one of some 43 years. Yet we must confess that it is also a young story still being written. In many ways our story may never end and we will just continue to grow and evolve as life takes us away on its own One of a Kind journey.

In a nut shell One of a Kind Community Support is a social enterprise that has planted its foundations in providing community support with it’s Volunteer Based Op Shop’s & Recycling Business having One of a Kind Op-Shops in Tamworth, Narrabri and Armidale NSW. All of these elements of One of a Kind are fully supported by volunteer’s heart and soul. 

The funds from our Op-Shops plus funding grants and donations provide Tamworth and Armidale with a Community Hub each for different Community and Social Groups to meet and build connection. 

We create relationships and partnerships with other community groups, Government Agencies, and businesses and clubs to host events, create initiatives and deliver programs and offer support. Check out our Programs page for more details….

We are always looking to make more connections and lend a hand where we can so please share some love and show your support. It’s easy! You can volunteer, donate, purchase recycled goods, follow us on social media and share our things, get involved with the blog. If we can do but one thing that is to say 

BE THE “ONE OF A KIND” THAT YOU ALREADY ARE!

Celebrate you, you’ll be better for it and so will the world. All change begins within us. Good Luck on your journey, we hope our paths meet soon xxx


OUR JOURNEY

One of a Kind Community Support started out as a community based Association on the 17th September 1972, known as Lifeline Tamworth, then as Lifeline Northwest NSW.

The Association was created to provide a telephone counselling service to the Northwest and New England regions of New South Wales. All telephone counsellors were trained and accredited under Lifeline guidelines; and volunteered their time, skills, experience and personal qualities to the immediate care of people in a crisis.

Following the transition away from Lifeline national network in July 2014, the Association now operates as “One of a Kind Community Support”.
