Come and join our unique team at Grapevine

12 September 2018.

“Living my best life” is a term broadly used on social media, sometimes in an authentic way and sometimes with more than a sprinkle of sarcasm.

But here at Grapevine what it means to us is a vision of people and communities with the energy and confidence to tackle challenges and take opportunities. All kinds of people actually, experiencing isolation, poverty and disadvantage.

And this is where you might come in…
