Eden Community Access Centre Inc. - Rural Support Workers program
M-F 9 am to 4pm
Rural Support Workers program offers one on one support for local disaster affected individuals and families from locals who care and understand the difficulties faced. We assist people and advocate on their behalf to help get them back on their feet after a disaster like the bushfires. We walk them through the various services available, the red tape of rebuilding right through to helping with their well-being by reconnecting them with community or mental health assistance if required. Our aim is to be by their side if they need the support until they feel life is back on an even keel.
We have Rural Support Workers based across the Bega Valley Shire who are all community members such as yourself and care about how our community recovers from the effects of disasters and hope to help people reconnect with family, community and services where needed.
