Merger boosts sup­port skills

Pilbara News - - News - Tom Zaun­mayr

Lo­cal In­for­ma­tion Net­work Kar­ratha has merged with Em­pow­er­ing Peo­ple in Com­mu­ni­ties in an ef­fort to strengthen fam­ily sup­port pro­grams and ser­vices pro­vided in the Pil­bara.

LINK par­ent in­for­ma­tion project co-or­di­na­tor Francesca Quayle said the merger would al­low LINK to ex­pand ser­vices across the Pil­bara.

“As Pil­bara-based ser­vices we un­der­stand the com­plex­ity of re­gional liv­ing and con­stantly strive to de­liver qual­ity ser­vice in a re­spon­sive and in­clu­sive man­ner,” she said.

“We feel very well po­si­tioned for a sus­tain­able and bright fu­ture as a Pil­bara based or­gan­i­sa­tion and are de­lighted to be part of the EPIC fam­ily.”

EPIC chief ex­ec­u­tive Stephanie Soter said the two or­gan­i­sa­tions were a nat­u­ral fit for each other.

“This merger gives us the op­por­tu­nity to com­bine our ex­per­tise and skills to en­hance the qual­ity of sup­port pro­vided by LINK in the north­west and pro­vide a more wide-rang­ing sup­port net­work for peo­ple liv­ing in the area,” she said.

“EPIC is ex­cited by the prospect of ex­pand­ing the LINK pro­gram across the Pil­bara re­gion to in­clude Onslow, Hed­land and New­man.”

EPIC pro­vides dis­abil­ity sup­port, com­mu­nity pro­grams, ed­u­ca­tion and em­ploy­ment ser­vices.
