A free information guide for people with a mobility impairment wanting to know how to get around (and beyond) the Northern Rivers is now available through the Northern Rivers Social Development Council (NRSDC). A new 35 page booklet called Accessible Transport in the Northern Rivers outlines what accessible transport options are available in the local area and outlines how to go about using them.
The Clarence Valley Transport Committee is about to run its annual transport awareness ‘Moving People’ promotion.
Now is the time for people from the Clarence Valley to the Tweed to speak out on their transport issues. Transport for NSW has just released a Discussion Paper which examines key transport issues, challenges and opportunities for Sydney and regional NSW as part of the development of a draft NSW Long Term Transport Master Plan, to be released in mid 2012.
A ground-breaking new project designed to educate people with a lived experience of mental illness and help them enter paid employment in the mental health sector is now underway and getting great results. The Lived Experience Project (LEP), an initiative of the Northern Rivers Social Development Council (NRSDC), currently has 29 participants across the Northern Rivers region preparing to become peer support workers while studying Certificate IV in Community Services at ACE North Coast.
Northern Rivers Social Development Council today welcomed Fair Work Australia’s decision to grant significant increases to community sector workers. The decision in the long running Equal Remuneration Case recognises that 150,000 community service workers around Australia are currently not fairly paid for the work that they do. The decision grants increases of between 18% and 41%.
