Community Advisory Service
Our experienced Community Advisory service is available to listen to concerns, provide information and offer support for yourself, family and friends. Each person’s circumstances are different, so information and advice is individually tailored to your situation and priorities.
Who is it for?
When day-to-day activities and general lifestyle are restricted due to ill health or disability, it can be stressful, confusing and overwhelming.
Speaking with our Community Advisor can make a positive difference by helping you feel informed, thus enabling decision making and ultimately flagging a sense of optimism for the future.
