City backs taskforce
Horsham Rural City Council has joined a group of organisations providing financial support to the Wimmera Drug Action Taskforce, WDAT, in 2019-20.
The council, along with Grampians Community Health, Uniting Wimmera, Wimmera Health Care Group, Horsham Sports and Community Club, Hillross and Consortium Private Wealth, will support WDAT for the next 12 months.
The funding means the taskforce can continue to fund a coordinator for two days a week until June 2020.
WDAT relies solely on donations from community organisations and receives no ongoing government support. The group comprises representatives from Wimmera agencies and community groups.
WDAT’S purpose is to reduce harm caused by alcohol and other drugs in Wimmera communities through education, prevention and early intervention strategies.
People can call WDAT coordinator Sally Pymer 5262 1200 or [email protected]ommunityhealth.org.au for more information.
