Support to ‘spread’ the word on living with COVID

Vulnerable groups in the Dubbo region will be supported to reconnect post-COVID, thanks to a grant from the NSW Government.

Member for the Dubbo electorate Dugald Saunders said Connecting Community Services (CCS) has secured $10,000 from the COVID-19 Community Connection and Wellbeing Program to “spread” the word with a flyer on learning to live with COVID.

“CCS works with many vulnerable individuals and groups within our community, and sadly they report a lot of these people seem quite hesitant to re-engage,” Mr Saunders said.

“By giving people access to information we empower them, so we can revive a better sense of connection and social wellbeing in the Dubbo region, which took such a hit during our local outbreak.

“I’m confident this initiative will support our community by facilitating a sense of belonging, which research shows is strongly linked to improved mental health outcomes.”

CCS CEO Michelle Redden said it was important for the organisation to help spread the word.

“We also work within a network of many service providers and are in a fortunate position to be able to share what we have to those who can share this valuable information with many more,” Mrs Redden said.

“The flyer created by our team, supported by the NSW Government, was also created in four languages ensuring we were able to provide information to as many as possible.”
