Service providers in the Mountains and managers from further afield got together last Thursday 21st of June with the members of the Tibetan Community in the Mountains. At the last count 60 Tibetans on humanitarian visas had moved into the mountains.

The idea was to give the Tibetan community an idea of the services available and for services to get an idea of what the community needed. There was a fantastic atmosphere. More than 20 Tibetan people attended and were really engaged with service providers through their leaders and the very well organised interpreter.

Thirteen different agencies came including TAFE, Multicultural Health for Western Sydney and lots of locals services. It gave the Tibetan Community a great connection to those who make decisions as well as to those who deliver services.

Jane McQueen did BMRSG proud in running an excellent meeting and all the work Leona Kieran, the Tibetan leaders, Mary Waterford and Deb Dare did behind the scenes made the whole day very successful. A great partnership between BMRSG, The Tibetan community, Blue Mountains Council and Katoomba Neighbourhood Centre.
