Last week, our Regional Engagement Coordinator, Siofra visited Townsville to meet with our members and to also attend a Northern Queensland PHN event – Building our Vision for 2020 and Beyond on Monday 26 November.
It was great to see some many organisations from many sections of the community at the Northern Queensland PHN event. There is clearly a great amount of support and comradery amongst the community sector in Northern Queensland. These events provide an excellent opportunity for the sector to meet and exchange ideas and learnings within the sector.
Thank you to Northern Queensland PHN for hosting the event and for the photos!
While in Townsville, Siofra met with Feros Care the Local Area Coordinator for the National Disability Insurance Scheme (NDIS) in the Townsville region. Siofra learnt of the progress of the NDIS in the Townsville region from representatives at Feros Care.
Siofra also met with Maureen Heron the manager of the Townsville Intercultural Centre. Maureen, Dr Favardin Daliri and the team are busily preparing for their Conference next year. The Townsville Intercultural Centre will be hosting the National Unity in Diversity Conference in Brisbane in July 2019.
It was also great to catch up with Evelyn Edwards CEO and staff from North and West Remote Health. Siofra also caught up with Jeremy Audas.
Siofra will be heading out on her last tour for the year to Bundaberg, Rockhampton and Cairns.
