Port Douglas Community Service Network Inc held an event earlier this month for Child Protection Week, promoting the value of children and focusing attention on the issues of child abuse and neglect.
The Chatty Café Scheme assists in keeping communities connected by reducing social isolation. Cafes, restaurants, pubs, clubs, local malls designate a ‘Have a Chat’ table where customers can sit if they are happy to talk to other customers-and the first cafe in Queensland kicks off in Port Douglas this week!
Mossman Support Services recently welcomed a new manager Heather Taylor on board. Enjoy today’s chat with Heather, and catch up with the latest happenings at your local community centre.
Heather joined the team in March, and little more than a week later, COVID-19 forced the closure of the Centre at a time when community needs remained high, and grew even more.
