Surf clubs and local councils across Australia are increasingly focusing on ways to improve every day inclusion and access to open up their beaches and clubhouses to everyone in their community.
Online and phone support for carers is currently available via the Carer Gateway ph. 1800 422 737 or www.carergateway.gov.au. The Australian Government recently announced in person services for carers will commence from April 2020. In person services will include carer support planning, coaching, peer support, counselling, carer directed packages and emergency respite care. These services will be provided by regional delivery partners including Carers NSW.

Canberra Brass Inc., supported by The Band of the Royal Military College Duntroon, recently held a charity concert to support the work of our association. We heard that the concert went fabulously well and was an afternoon enjoyed by all who attended. Our thanks to Canberra Brass Inc. and to our volunteers who attended to help on the day. The event raised $2,086 and will be put towards assisting people living with MND.
