WA Regional Consultations
WACOSS is listening to rural, regional & remote communities
During July 2010, the Western Australia Council of Social Service (WACOSS) will be conducting consultations with regional and remote community service organisations and communities. WACOSS is interested in listening to local people and learning more about the issues that affect your community, as well as discussing with you the best strategies to address these issues.
More than half a million Western Australians live outside of metropolitan Perth in an area spanning a quarter of a million square kilometres. As the peak body for the community services sector across WA, WACOSS is committed to addressing the unique issues faced by regional and remote communities, as well as the isolation and the socio-economic disadvantages associated with living outside of Perth.
Irina Cattalini, WACOSS Director of Social Policy, will be travelling to various regional locations to meet with you and your community to listen, gain valuable understandings of issues and ideas, and engage in discussions for positive change.
In order to accurately identify the most significant issues in your region, and understand the complexities of your community, it is important that WACOSS meets with as many regional and remote stakeholders as possible.
We encourage you to accept this invitation and join Irina at your community forum.
