Have your say
Community and human services organisation Intereach wants to know more about your community.
Intereach Ability Links staff will be outside Jerilderie IGA today to provide information and answer questions about the services the organisation provides.
The staff will also be asking community members to complete the ‘Have Your Say’ survey, which is designed to help identify what service gaps may exist within the community.
Ability Links senior manager Mardi Chartres said she encourages all Jerilderie locals to take the time to find out more about the services available.
‘‘Intereach works alongside families, children, older people, carers and people with a disability, so there is a strong chance that you or someone you know could use one of our services at some point in your life,” Mrs Chartres said.
‘‘It’s important you know what services and supports we offer. We have an office in Finley, Hay, Echuca, Deniliquin, Albury, Griffith, Wagga and Shepparton to name a few, which is a strong presence in the Riverina Murray and northern Victoria.’’
Intereach Ability Links is about building connections in your local community. Ability ‘Linkers’ work with people living with a disability or major barrier, as well as their family members and carers, to enable them to make new connections and find out what services, resources and groups are available to assist them to reach their full potential. See the Intereach staff in Jerilderie between 10.30am and noon today outside of IGA supermarket.
