Ser­vice groups en­ter al­liance

Pilbara News - - News - Ali­cia Per­era

Two in­land Pil­bara com­mu­nity ser­vice or­gan­i­sa­tions have for­malised their decades-long work­ing re­la­tion­ship with the sign­ing of a strate­gic part­ner­ship.

Tom Price’s Nin­tirri Cen­tre and the Karin­gal Neigh­bour­hood Cen­tre in Parabur­doo agreed to a strate­gic al­liance part­ner­ship ear­lier this month, in an agree­ment set­ting out how they can im­prove and ex­pand com­mu­nity ser­vices avail­able to peo­ple in the com­mu­ni­ties of Tom Price, Parabur­doo, Wakathuni, Bel­lary Springs and Youn­galeena.

Sign­ings took place in Parabur­doo and Tom Price be­fore a cel­e­bra­tory din­ner was held with key stake­hold­ers. Both com­mu­nity ser­vice or­gan­i­sa­tions be­gan oper­at­ing in the 1980s and do sim­i­lar work in their re­spec­tive com­mu­ni­ties, but the doc­u­ment marks the first time they have for­malised a work­ing part­ner­ship.

The agree­ment cov­ers ar­eas in­clud­ing early years care and ed­u­ca­tion, health and well­be­ing, busi­ness growth and arts and tourism de­vel­op­ment, and has al­ready led to a fam­ily vi­o­lence ser­vice and fly-in, fly-out mid­wife vis­it­ing both towns each month.
