THE NSW Government has thrown its support behind Lifeline Central West in recognition of the ever increasing demand for the services it provides to the wider community.
Member for Bathurst Paul Toole has announced funding of $50,000 to allow the registered charity to adopt more modern and innovative technologies into their operations.
“The footprint of Lifeline Central West covers about half of New South Wales, including rural and remote areas in Western NSW,” Mr Toole said.
“With rising demand in providing community support, being able to incorporate the latest technology into the way they work will help improve productivity, save time and maintain a high work standard.
“This translates to improved efficiencies in the delivery of service for Lifeline Central West which again helps the way they relieve stress and suffering in the community.”
Mr Toole said Lifeline Central West offers a 24/7 telephone crisis support service, face-to-face Gamble Aware counselling and community-based training.”
