West Coasters Connecting with Community Services

20 May 2015

A concerted effort by West Coast Council to bring service providers together for community members to visit continues to be a success.

The Connect with Community Services sessions have been running across the West Coast for several months and aim to inform the West Coast community of the services provided to all locals by both visiting a local service providers across a range of areas.

Held in a friendly, relaxed environment with a free BBQ and refreshments, the sessions have seen a gradual increase in people coming along to learn more about services available in the area.

“We had over twenty community members visit during the Queenstown session held yesterday (19th May),” General Manager Dirk Dowling said.  “The sessions provide a great opportunity for people to gather information – it could be related to something they need assistance with, or for someone they know.  It is vital that our residents understand that assistance across a variety of areas is available.”

The Queenstown session saw representatives from agencies such as Mission Australia, the Cancer Council, HealthWest and Anglicare amongst others at hand to provide information and answer questions.

“In hosting Connect with Community Sessions we are also mindful that confidentiality is a must and as such provide non-threatening and private areas for individuals to discuss matters when needed” Mr. Dowling stated.

The next Connect with Community Services event will be held 16th June at the Rosebery Community House from 10.30am until 2.00pm.

Anyone requiring assistance, or a service provider wishing to become involved, can contact Council on 64 714 700 to speak with a member of our Community Services Team, or call Lifeline on 131114.
