Morwell Salvos will host a Community Service Expo on Wednesday, 18 October, from 10am to 3pm.


“We wanted to provide something for the community so that they could come see different services available in one place,” event organiser Major Lenore Pack said. “So that if there was something that they needed, they could connect then and there.


“What we have discovered is that people don’t realise what is available to help them. It might not just be about getting financial assistance but just what services can help them with whatever they need.


“We have found that if people have never been in a situation where they have needed help, they just don’t know what is out there until that time. We are finding that people are needing access to different services, and we are hoping the expo can bring that for our community.”


The day will showcase 32 services throughout the Gippsland region, such as NDIS help, financial aid, employment agencies and much more.

Even Bunnings is supplying help to the event, with face painting for younger children who are too young to be in school.


Fellow event planner Maya Bennett (Employment Plus Chaplain – Gippsland) said that if many people turn up, they may be able to do this as a regular event so that people can continue learning about these services.
