Þ White Cliffs Model for our local Health Centre?
Far West Health continues to have difficulty recruiting and retaining experienced nurses to our Health Clinic.


The White Cliffs Clinic Health Council is working on a unique “White Cliffs Model” which it can present to the Far West Health Board in a effort to fix this problem.


If you have any ideas please contact Dick Wagner.

Þ FRRR Grants—Tackling Tough Times Together
https://www.frrr.org.au/grants/tackling_tough_times_together
This program helps communities access the resources they need to support one another through the ongoing effects of the drought.
It is designed to provide flexible funding to support community-based activities that both help to relieve current stressors and symptoms, and most importantly, build capacity and resilience for the future. Funds could also support activities that engage your local community in being proactive, exploring options and creating something that will stand the test of tough times.
