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.
