29 November, 2017

MPREC’s VTEC (Vocational Training and Employment Centres) Case Manager, Brendan Doyle, has visited several communities in the region, to connect with local Elders and community members.
 
Brendan visited Menindee, Broken Hill and Dareton, where he held talks with several key community leaders.
 
He also attended the Tenant Support and Education Project’s Family Day in Dareton. This was a fantastic day organised by Mid Lachlan Aboriginal Housing Management Co-operative in conjunction with Murdi Paaki Regional Housing Corporation Ltd, Coonamble LALC, Energy & Water Ombudsman NSW & Origin Energy Hard Ship Team.

People had the chance to learn more about the services in their Community, also to meet with Ash Taylor NRL Player with Gold coast titans, and enjoy live music from the ‘Street Warriors’.

A free BBQ, prizes and jumping castle for the children was available.
