The role of the Peninsula Interagency is to provide a forum to share information, strategies and programs so as to empower the Peninsula community to fully access all available services, programs, facilities and support available to them.
The Peninsula Interagency aims to;
- Increase awareness, understanding and accessibility in the local community of programs and services available to them
- Actively lobby and advocate as a united network on relevant and important issues to the Peninsula community
- Act as a support network for Peninsula services and workers, both on a formal and informal basis
- Encourage participation from community groups and networks at our meeting
This is a welcoming group of Service providers and agencies covering all areas of need in our Peninsula community
Meeting frequency/location + format
The Peninsula Interagency meets from 1.30 -3.00pm on the 3rd Wednesday Bi Monthly, with the first meeting in February. The meetings are held at the Peninsula Community Centre, 93 McMasters Rd Woy Woy. Our meetings allocate time for new services to share information about their programs and for all services present to talk about what they are currently doing in the Community.
Members represent programs for all areas of community need including health, education, mental health, crisis relief, employment. Youth and community services – we are not specific to one type of service or target group. We also have different speakers at each meeting that represent programs, services and also Government initiatives that are available for our Peninsula Community.
Focus for 2019 and/or events and projects
The Focus for 2019 is more group directed input into selection of speakers and meeting content. We are also working together on a social inclusion event with Central Coast Council.
