Hello again, Just wanted to update you a…

Hello again,

Just wanted to update you all about the efforts to contact all the Carer groups in the area.  A number of Coordinators and station Managers are still on leave or still involved with flood relief efforts.  I have been given a number of contact names and numbers and that is a task set down for the end of this months when things have hopefully settled everywhere.

QLD Disability Services have been very helpful and encouraging and their efforts are very appreciated – well done Casey and Natalie –
