There is no doubt that ongoing COVID-19 restrictions are affecting many people across Macarthur.

And Lifeline Macarthur has teamed up with Big Yellow Umbrella to spread some positive messages of support.

A Lifeline spokeswoman said small businesses were also helping to share the message.

"We appreciate how hard the impacts of the current COVID restrictions are affecting members of our local community," she said.

"As we each face our own individual challenges in relation to the current COVID situation it is now more important than ever to come together as a community, reach out, connect and support each other.

"Together Big Yellow Umbrella, Lifeline Macarthur and Western Sydney, as well as many small local businesses have collaborated to share positive messages across the Camden district, in what is an extremely difficult time for everyone."

Twenty-eight large banners will be displayed in prominent positions around the community to provide positive messages of hope and togetherness.

"Our aim is to help our community come together and support each other during these unprecedented times," the spokeswoman said.

"If you would like to be involved in this initiative you can purchase small signs, similar to real estate signs, to place out the front of your house or business."
