NSW SES Randwick Unit have partnered with Randwick-Waverley Community Transport Service to launch an exciting new initiative to connect with the local community and build resilience.
Community Transport drivers from the Randwick-Waverley branch have become ambassadors for NSW SES, acting as a conduit to provide information from NSW SES to clients of the transport service.
Many of the transport clients are elderly, frail or are living with a disability.
“A personal touch, a friendly chat, can make all the difference in getting our message across” said Regina Böhler, Community Capability Co-ordinator at NSW SES Randwick Unit.
“We have a diverse community, so it’s important we use a variety of ways beyond social media to reach out and connect” she said.
The partnership with Community Transport helps the unit to build community resilience in the local area.
