Your November News Digest is the final issue for 2018. While we look forward to the end-of-year break, the coming month is filled with events and activities to round out the year.
The launch of WSCF’s Build Beyond Bricks Campaign in Parramatta on October 31 saw key regional leaders in debate on the topic: “There has never been a better time to live in western Sydney – or not?” NCOSS CEO Joanna Quilty and Youth Action’s Paniora Nukunuku went head to head with Greater Sydney Commission Social Commissioner Helen O’Loughlin and the Centre for Western Sydney Director, Professor Phil O’Neill. Our new campaign delineates key directions and recommendations for the future growth of western Sydney, with robust, healthy communities kept at the core of development, policy and planning.
December 3 is International Day of People with Disability and there are many ways to get involved: check out the Australian Network on Disability’s resource, ‘Five Impactful Ways for Workplaces to Celebrate IDPWD’. Remember, November 16 is the due date for providers to submit their annual CHSP Wellness and Reablement Report, to meet the terms of the Commonwealth Home Support Programme (CHSP) grant agreement. There are details for two Disability Expos scheduled for the region, as well as the COTA Conference on Building a Quality Aged Care Workforce.
Our final thoughts for 2018 are to extend warm wishes for health and wellbeing to all our Community Care subscribers. We look forward to returning with your next News Digest issue in early February 2019.
