Early May was a busy time at the rooming house with tenants benefiting from two different workshops.
On 4 May, Nigel Joseph from EACH attended the Berwick Rooming House to discuss the services EACH can offer regarding drug and alcohol use. EACH recognise that health and wellbeing is significantly and negatively affected by factors such as unemployment, homelessness, financial difficulties, social exclusion and addiction so they offer a wide range of supports to assist members of the community to lead happier, healthier lives.
On 11 May, Lisa Hansen from Casey North Community Information and Support Service attended the Berwick Rooming House to run a financial literacy workshop. Casey North CISS has a range of services and programs that have been developed to respond to the pressing needs of the local community.
The feedback from the tenants was very positive.
Thank you Nigel and Lisa for your time and support.
