Yarrawonga is set to become the health hub of Moira Shire with Providing All Living Support (PALS) Inc moving its Strategic Management Office to the town.FIONA BLICK April 1, 2014 4:37pm
PALS currently provides a full range of disability services in the Moira Shire, primarily in Yarrawonga, Numurkah and Cobram plus provides services in the Shepparton and Mooroopna region.
PALS spokesperson Nicole Christopherson said the head office was originally based in Numurkah at the old shire building however it was required to vacate this location as Moira Shire required their office space back for the expansion of its customer service operation.
“The new office in Yarrawonga will allow the organisation to better service Yarrawonga, southern NSW and north eastern Victoria including Benalla and Wangaratta by offering a full range of disability, personal care and aged care service activities,” Ms Christopherson said.
“The employees and clients are excited and thrilled about the move to Yarrawonga and it will give the organisation a greater profile to complement the excellent work the Yarrawonga community did in raising the funds to build Gorman House.”
Ms Christopherson said this exciting time also brings closer the roll out of the National Disability Insurance Scheme (NDIS) where “people with a disability will be given decision making abilities and control over their own funding”.
“PALS welcomes NDIS and we believe it will shift the power to the individual and will ensure all people that need assistance will be supported.”
PALS Inc will be located at Suite 8, Level 1, 3 Witt Street, Yarrawonga.
