Connecting Care News

Communique – 8th September 2020


Connecting Care Central Coast provided feedback to the local community about outcomes from the 18-month Anticipatory Care Project at a lunchtime community forum held in the Gnomon Room, Ulverstone Wharf precinct on Tuesday 25 August. Thank you to those who came.


We are pleased to be able to share videos from the forum which can be found on the Connecting Care Portal or via Facebook.


We proudly showcased the lasting legacy the Project leaves to the Central Coast Community in the form of the Connecting Care Portal (including the Local Resource Directory) and an innovative Community Wellbeing Governance Model developed locally for Central Coast in partnership with Collective ed Ulverstone and Central Coast Council.


Connecting Care Portal

If you haven’t checked out the Portal recently – please do! We continue to improve functionality and content and work will begin soon on incorporating additional enhancements to ensure sustainability of the Local Resource Directory and Portal once they are gifted to Central Coast Council at the end of the year.


Please encourage your organisation and other local service providers, community groups and other relevant organisations to list on this FREE Directory. Without your help we can’t provide the community with the means to connect to support when and where it’s needed.


Central Coast Community Wellbeing Governance Model

The Collective ed Ulverstone and Connecting Care partnership is driving the transition to this new community-driven governance model. Maree Gleeson and Judi Walker are working with Collective ed to manage this smoothly and ensure that it works collaboratively with groups and organisation across Central Coast. A joint meeting of the Connecting Care Roundtable and the Collective ed working group will be held on 27 October to move this forward. Check out the short videos on the Portal and Facebook page.


Please like us on Facebook and keep in touch.
