Northern Sydney Region eBulletin

October 2016

Welcome to our new look October edition.

As you can see, we’ve changed our format quite a bit. I’d love to hear what you think, so please feel free to email me your feedback!

As we count down to Christmas (scary thought), and to 27 February, there are lots of great workshops and resources in this edition to help keep busy and on track. Including free staff and community presentations. Whatever support you need, our aim is to be able to provide it. As always my goal is to provide you with a  valuable resource that will make your role easier, so if there's anything else we can add to this eBulletin please let me know.
Until next time
Rosanna Commisso, Home Support & Partnership Coordinator
