Last week Yoorana Gunya and Weigelli Centre, Cowra held a meet and greet at Lions Park in Forbes. The day was a chance for community members to meet and greet staff from Weigelli who will now be aiding Yoorana Gunya and Binaal Billa in Forbes with extra services.
The Weigelli Centre is a residential Alcohol and Drug Rehabilitation Centre and offers a range of services to the Cowra Shire and now Forbes. It has been operating in Cowra for nearly 26 years and proven to be a remarkable local asset.
Alcohol and Other Drug Mental Health Worker, Cathy Sherdian and her team were on hand on the day meeting members of the Forbes community.
“We are pleased to be able to assist members of the Forbes community who may require our services,” said Cathy.
“We offer a range of support and welfare assistance and can help people struggling with mental health issues or substance abuse,” she said.
“Weigelli can go through each step and follow through rehabilitation every step of the way.”
The expansion in services for Yoorana Gunya and Binaal Billa coincided with the Binaal Billa Open Day also held last week showcasing new upgrades at the Binaal Billa, Spring Street office funded by the Department of Aboriginal Affairs. The Open
Day was also a popular event. Don’t forget that Ochre Ribbon Day is also coming up on Wednesday March 9th at Binaal Billa, 18 Spring Street from 10am.
