Merger boosts support skills
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.
